Massey celebrates National Oncology Nursing Month by honoring Joyce Robinson, licensed practical nurse at Massey's Dalton Oncology Clinic. . What is the most rewarding part of your job? I love being able to help our patients and all people, especially the elderly. It feels so good when you're able to give someone a hug or a smile and completely brighten up their day. . What made you want to become a nurse? When I was young, my grandfather got sick. We didn't know it at the time, but he was battling prostate cancer in a rural area of Virginia. He had no access to pain management and suffered a terrible death. I told myself, 'when I get big I'm going to be a nurse and help people.' I served in palliative care for years and have always been in oncology. Next year I'll have been with @vcuhealth for 30 years. I stay here because it is a great hospital with great nurses and doctors. I believe in the work that I do. #oncologynursingmonth #vcumasseymonday

A team of Massey doctors recently became the first in the world to use a new implantable, bio-absorbable radiation therapy device known as CivaSheet to treat pancreatic cancer. The device is implanted at the same time doctors remove the tumor, and it provides localized radiation therapy while shielding neighboring organs before being absorbed into the body. Learn more about this exciting new treatment from @rtdnews at the link in our bio. #teammassey

Massey celebrates National #OncologyNursingMonth by honoring Lindsey Gwaltney, pediatric clinical research nurse coordinator at @childrensatvcu and Massey. . What is the most rewarding part of your job? Watching the kids grow, smile and go through their chemo treatments with such bravery. It's amazing that some of these kids are stronger than their parents, but the experience makes their relationships grow stronger in a healthy way. . What made you want to become a nurse? I've always had a desire to help people heal and advocate for themselves. I used to think I wanted to be a pediatric cardiologist, but nursing was a better fit for me. It gave me a sense of belonging, knowing that people came to me for help and knew I would take care of them.
