At this week’s happy hour event, CaringOn honored a well-deserving woman who exemplifies our mission. Jessica Fox is a Nurse Navigator/Social Worker at Medstar Union Memorial Hospital whose work focuses on cancer patients there. Her role has been to provide the emotional and psychological support for the patients and their caregiver as they deal with diagnosis, treatment, and recovery during their frightening illness.
Jessica’s endless compassion and advocacy on behalf of her patients and their caregivers is boundless and her work with CaringOn led her to personally nominate eight patients and caregivers for CaringOn gifts last year. We presented most of those gifts and want to tell you there was not a dry eye in the oncology ward at most presentations.
Thank you Jessica for your staunch belief in the power of “thank you” and the need to care for the caregiver.
