Amanda has been a pediatric oncology nurse at the POGO Satellite Clinic at the Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital since 2018. In May 2021, Amanda received the hospital’s Nurses Alumnae Nightingale Award for her caring dedication to children and families affected by childhood cancer.

I love my job and that I get to work with families in my community. They appreciate that they can receive some of their care closer to home instead of always travelling to a big city centre and that we can spend a lot of one-on-one time together. I take my time with each little patient to ease their fears, and I try to help parents feel a little less anxious. I just want to make things a little bit better while they are going through such a difficult time.” - Amanda

POGO is committed to providing ongoing education to healthcare professionals who work in POGO Satellite Clinics. POGO Satellite Education Day provides attendees with practical strategies to manage identified issues related to the treatment of children with cancer in a satellite setting where care is provided closer to home.
