She was only three years old at the time but she remembers the pokes, and the meds. She says it was a very positive experience and has made her the person she is today! Today the things that make her strong are being able to help patients and knowing that everyone is after the same goal! Her favorite superheroes are her own kiddos. If Amanda could have a superpower it would be to be able to do multiple things at the same time. Her favorite things to do are spending time with her kids, her husband and family as well as some shopping! Ever since Amanda was diagnosed she would tell her parents that she was going to become a nurse, and since then, she never strayed from the plan and quickly realized her passion was working with pediatric patients! Way to go Amanda!
