Taylor Wheatley is an everyday hero because she fights cancer so other kids won’t have to. At the age of five, Wheatley was diagnosed with Leukemia. Two and a half years of treatments followed and, at the end of that fight, she was declared cancer-free.


She works as an oncology nurse at a Calgary hospital. A typical working day for a nurse means starting work at 07:30 am. and finishing at 03:00 pm. A nurse works in a hospital.


At work, she has to takes care of kids with cancer. To be a nurse you need these skills: patience, responsibility and care for kids.


I would like to be a nurse because it is an important job. I would prefer to be a doctor because I’d like to cure cancer.
