In the spring of 2017, while taking care of her mother who was battling a deadly brain tumor, @MariaMenounos was also diagnosed with a tumor in the membranes surrounding her brain. It was benign, but she still faced the reality of undergoing major brain surgery.⁣ ⁣ It was once she became a patient herself that Maria discovered firsthand the true value of nurses—like the nurses who cared for her, pictured here.⁣ ⁣ “Nurses are absolute gems. They are the ones who are really there with you 24/7, helping you get better. Nurses understand that everybody is an individual; it’s not one size fits all,” Maria says.⁣ ⁣ She also recognizes that nurses are often on the forefront of #innovation. “I know how much they've already innovated—from the nurse who realized a baby with jaundice could be healed with sunlight to the nurse who created crash carts.”⁣ ⁣ “Nurses are on the front lines every day, so they see the need firsthand and can come up with a solution much faster than anybody else could. We need to celebrate them. We need to treat nurses like gold.”⁣ ⁣ Learn more about #JNJ’s Nurses Innovate #QuickFireChallenge, which invites nurses to submit new ideas to help address critical health challenges and a chance to receive up to $100,000 in funding, plus mentoring and coaching through J&J Innovation’s #JLABS, and find out more about Maria’s journey in the link in our bio.⁣ #NursesChangeLives #ChangingHumanHealth
