"Rob invests all his energy and emotion into every patient he interacts with," wrote Justin Gress who nominated Robert Beach. "He does not give up on his patients and continues to care, love and support them throughout their entire treatment journey."
One award winner, Carrie Czech, treated her mother while her mother was being treated for breast cancer. Czech says treating someone so close to her made her realize even more just how crucial the oncology nurse's job truly is.
"It is truly an honor and privilege to walk the cancer journey with my patients," said Czech. "They really become like family to me, and I love caring for them. I am also incredibly grateful that I was able to care for my mom. She is my inspiration."
The Excellence in Oncology Nursing Award also comes with an award of $1,000 to help further the five winners' oncology nursing education.
