Biography :

Joanna Burgess, BSN, RN, CWOCN was diagnosed with bladder cancer in 1965. Despite grueling medical treatments throughout her growing years, Joanna always knew that she wanted to be a nurse and give back to patients in a kind and gentle way. Joanna’s career has been diverse, ranging from pediatrics at Duke University Medical Center to enjoying a private practice in the holistic modalities of massage and healing touch therapy, to establishing a clinic for the treatment of lymphedema in Chapel Hill, NC, to her current position with geriatrics at WakeMed in Cary, NC as a wound and ostomy nurse. Joanna was honored to be the national recipient of the Great Comebacks Award in 2011. This program recognizes individuals who have overcome bowel or bladder disease resulting in ostomy surgery who have been inspirational both in their personal lives and in what they have given to their communities. Joanna has shared her story on a state, national and international level. She sees herself as a bridge, linking the medical and scientific world with the world of being a patient. It has been her passion to bring these worlds together so that better understanding can be reached on both sides.
