Kristen Nicastro, RN, BSN, OCN

Kristen has been a nurse for 23 years. She has spent more than a decade in oncology, working in an outpatient ambulatory clinic caring for adult cancer patients at Lahey Health in her home community of Gloucester, MA. She is co-founder of the hospital's Reiki program, which has provided free Reiki to patients and the community for 10 years. She was drawn to oncology after seeing the impressive care provided to her grandmother during her lung cancer treatments.
Nurses can use legacy letters as a segue into end-of life discussions, or as an emotional healing tool for the terminally ill.
