What a nurse didn’t know until she became a patient 20

A diagnosis of breast cancer meant a nurse became the patient. Theresa Brown is an author and registered nurse, and she joins host Krys Boyd to discuss being on the other side of treatments, her frustrations with being reduced to her disease, and her worries that speaking up would make her a difficult patient and alienate the very doctors trying to save her. Her book is called “Healing: When a Nurse Becomes a Patient.”
