Congratulations Miss Courtney

      One of my hard working neighbors across the street has reached a  very important milestone. Courtney has just finished her nursing degree after four years of hard work.

     So congratulations Courtney. Have a great career.  I'm sure you'll make a fine nurse.

     Now years of hard work have to go into succeeding at a nursing program. Courtney was a hard working and competitive student all through her public school experience. Courtney had to get "A" and she did.

    Many people who succeed in degree programs have special challenges. Courtney has her special challenge that made it harder to achieve her goal but also gave her a big incentive.

     Courtney has neurofibromatosis (NF). What's that you say? I've never heard of it. I had never heard of neurofibromatosis either  until Courtney decided to go public with her condition.  Courtney decided that she would publicize the condition so that people would be aware of it and that there would be support for people with NF.

     NF is a nasty condition of many faces. Courtney writes a blog on NF. I will let you read about NF from Courtney's blog. She's excellent at explaining NF. Many doctors are like the general public and have never heard of NF so Courtney has had to do a lot of research on the condition and educate many a doctor.

    So as well as getting a nursing degree, Courtney has had a life altering condition that she's had to face. So along with headaches, constant worry about what NF will do next she's met with success.

    Take a look at her blog and find out what NF is. By the way , she's an excellent writer.

  9. Life can be so hard when you are fit and healthy but to live with a condition like neurofibromatosis makes it so much more of a struggle. Courtney deserves all the praise and support she has enjoyed. I hope the condition stands back and allows her to make a success of her nursing career. Thanks for sharing her story Red.

  14. Congratulations to Courtney! I find it interesting how many people pursue careers in areas that have touched their life, a true passion from the sounds of Courtney's chosen career path and one which I'm sure she will excel at as she's faced adversity. I know with all I've experienced it sure is a blessing to be able to help others, not only from the book teachings, but from life experience as well.

    I'll have to go and check out her blog, now I'm curious what this is.

    Cheers!

  22. My sister in-law who died after Christmas had the same terrible hailing as Courtney. It got the better half of her. She fought it at age 18 and died at 62 along with the other enemy to her body Cancer. Congrats Courtney. That is one of our local hairdressers name in town.
