“My name is Lynn Land and I am a Nurse Practitioner here at Southern Cancer Center. I have been here since 2011. I am married to my high school sweetheart. We have two beautiful girls and each girl now has a little boy so I have two grandsons. They are the best thing ever.
I love living in the South because I don’t like the cold. I enjoy the beach, the Gulf Coast, biking and spending time with family. In my free time I am usually with the grandchildren. The girls, we do a lot of retail therapy, shopping and visiting the beach.
My motivation is personal. My dad had a rare blood disorder and lived well past the years he was suppose to. When I was a little girl, he was treated at a big center and I heard over and over there was nothing we could do for you. So that motivated me to go and become a nurse, to become a Nurse Practitioner and I thought back then, I want to be someone who can do something to help others.
When I meet with patients, really I want to meet them where they are. I want to find out about them. The thing with Southern Cancer Center is we are family. We are community. We share a lot together. I love my patients. That’s why I do this. That’s why I show up everyday. They ask my about my children, my grandchildren, and I remember theirs. We share everything.
Success with a patient is when we can say, hey, your scan is clear. When we hear that bell ring. When the chemo if finished. That is success. We all work together at Southern Cancer Center to make sure that the patient’s journey is the best it can be. We want to make sure they have a treatment option that is best for them and we want them to know that there not alone. We are here going through this journey with them.”
