Ann Culkin, RN, OCN

Clinical Nurse
Ambulatory Care Thoracic Oncology Service
Memorial Sloan Kettering

Ann works specifically with lung cancer patients at one of the premiere cancer research centers in New York City. She is proud of the many advancements science has made in prolonging the lives of those diagnosed with terminal illnesses, and even saw her own mother survive well beyond her prognosis. And yet, sometimes she knows that the search for “a cure” comes at too great a cost to families and patients.
