When Magdalena came into the picture, then his guilt grows even more. Not only was it important for this novel to have a first-point of view because of Pietro Brown, but it had a huge impact on the way that Dr. Brown was interpreted and his story. Dr. Brown describes his patients, and with this, information about the patients and even the narrator himself are acquired. When Dr. Brown first sees Osteosarcoma girl, he shares that she is beautiful, but that she does not have the same eyes his deceased wife had.

“They certainly give very strange names to diseases.” - Plato Rebecca Skloot wanted to get this word across about how race, class, ethics, and other factors play a role in the science world today.

The one piece of information that will most likely affect my nursing practice will be to ensure I inquire about a caregiver’s emotional state and how he or she is coping. As an intensive care unit (ICU) nurse, I see firsthand how caregivers resume care at the hospital for his or her loved ones, even though there are health care professionals ready to take care of personal needs. It seems as if a caregiver does not know when to stop giving. A caregiver will at times, succumb under mounting challenges and tribulations at some point and will need support. For caregivers experiencing stress, self-help groups can be beneficial (Tabloski, 2014).

What if a person found out that they had a terminal illness and only had months to live? What if those few months would be filled with treatments, pain and suffering, tear filled family members, and high cost medical bills? Physician- assisted suicide remains a debated topic which causes physicians, nurses and those involved to take a look at what they value and what they are willing to do in order to carry out a patient’s wishes. Physician- assisted suicide can be thought of as helping a patient in carrying out their last days by providing the information and medication needed to end their life.

Almost every individual has had an experience where they or someone they know have battled a disease. No matter what the disease is, the patient typically is associated with negativity; however, in this memoir by Suleiki Jaouad, the author places a different view on cancer. Suleiki Jaouad developed (AML) acute myeloid leukemia, due to a bone marrow disorder, at the age of twenty two. Throughout her story, Jaouad discusses the impacts of developing cancer and how she coped with her disease.
