It is with a heavy heart that we communicate the passing of our dear friend and colleague Eileen McCann. Eileen fought the “cancer battle” strong and with such grace and dignity and is with such sadness that we offer her family and friends are thoughts and prayers.
Eileen was a longstanding member of our the NERWOCN. She was employed with Convatec for 9 years as Clinical Resource Specialist. Prior to this she was and acute care CWOCN at Stamford Hospital in CT. She has many accomplishments in her role as WOCN including publications, development of educational programs, engaging speaker both regionally and nationally and held numerous awards for outstanding work with a variety of local and national organizations.
Eileen was an amazing person who persevered through some challenging times with her health. She was admired and awed in what she could accomplish during her illness. You would never know she was struggling as she always has such an optimistic attitude and positive outlook. She leaves behind her wonderful family of 3 children, grandchildren and her husband Peter. Though words cannot express the sadness we are feeling, our memories of Eileen and all that she did to touch our lives will forever be remembered.
