During her freshman year in nursing school, Laura Weldishofer’s aunt was diagnosed with metastatic colorectal cancer. She was deeply moved by the relationship her aunt developed with the oncology nurses who cared for her. It was this experience that inspired Laura to specialize in oncology. Her special interests include head and neck cancer, nutrition, and treatment outcomes. She has completed additional training in supportive care to enhance her skills in patient care. In her free time, Laura is a Cantor at her church and has been known to sing to her patients while they receive their treatments. She also enjoys the outdoors, hiking, national parks and spending time with her daughter.
