Audrey Grizzle was a pediatric oncology nurse for 4 and half years. This post originally appeared on her blog, and she sent it to me last week, on the same day that she heard that the sweet boy she wrote about below had passed away from medulloblastoma-a horrific brain tumor.

Sweet, darling Bumble Bee – we will continue to search for a cure in honor of your precious life. Audrey is around these precious lives all day, and reminds us all that, “as much as miracles help us all cope with these tragic stories, funding for research is the only thing that will keep my beautiful patients singing for the many years they so greatly deserve.” Audrey, you are my shero. Thank you for helping these lives see tiny miracles every day.
Audrey Grizzle is a southern PK living in Atlanta where she plays bocce, drinks beer, walks her dog, attempts yoga without falling, plans a wedding, avoids cooking at all costs, and works as a clinical research nurse for the BMT team at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.
