Cookie and Laura

Cookie and her nurse, Laura McNally, BSN, RN

We have been touched by the kindness of so many nurses here at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin since my daughter, Cookie, was diagnosed with lymphoma in August 2012. She had six rounds of chemo followed by a bone marrow transplant. We could not have gotten through it without the love and great care of nurses like Laura McNally, her nurse in our MACC Fund Center.

Laura made a personal connection with Cookie from her very first treatment. Even after we went to the cancer unit, Laura continued to visit and follow up with Cookie. She started as Cookie’s nurse — now she is our friend!

Join me in acknowledging a nurse at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin who made a difference in the care of a child. Visit by Monday, March 18 to submit a nomination in Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Nurse of the Year award.

Why I love our nurses at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin — 2 Comments

  1. We, too, LOVE nurse Laura and so many other nurses at Children’s!!! So glad she was featured! We are so very fortunate to live near such an amazing and award winning hospital.

  2. We love all of our HOT and BMT nurses up there. But my son’s favorite is still miss Dre up on the unit. Sarah Lund was our favorite night nurse but she has moved on to start a new life in green bay. Our nurses truly made a bad situation a little better and easier to deal with.
