Picture of the Day .... shared by my Kristen... something we all need when we're busy or not at home! Bruiser would love it!

Interesting about the quick brown fox..........
The statement "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" is an English-language pangram. It is a sentence that contains all of the letters of the alphabet. It is used in practice sessions to help individuals learn touch-typing skills. When testing typewriters and computer keyboards or displaying examples of fonts and other applications involving text, the statement will be used to apply all the letters in the alphabet. This is desired for clarification purposes. Owing to its brevity and coherence, the sentence is very well known among students, clerical staff, computer operators, etc.

On September 8th, National Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Nurses Day recognizes the hardworking and dedicated professionals bringing care to patients every day. 
Honoring nurses caring for pediatric hematology and oncology patients, the observance takes place during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. These dedicated professionals provide quality nursing care for children, adolescents and young adults with cancer and blood disorders. Additionally, they provide the highest standard of physical and emotional support to these most precious patients and their families. 
Cancer is frightening enough. When applied to children, pediatric care requires special skills and training. Not only do children relate to pain differently, but their growing bodies require specialized attention.  Hematology and oncology nurses provide valuable care and guidance to families.
From the first diagnosis and through each treatment, these experts in pediatric care offer untiring support. Day and night, the nurses answer questions, monitor and track progress. Their knowledge of each patient’s needs provides essential information to the entire team. 


The Association of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Nurses (APHON) is credited with founding this National Day dedicated to the pediatric and hematology/oncology nurses across the country.
