The one hundred honoree: Rachel Bolton, RN, CPON

Mass General Giving

“Rachel Bolton is a smart, loving and nurturing nurse whose professionalism, kindness and sense of humor make her patients fall in love with her. She is doing exactly what she was put on this earth to do: care for children.

Rachel’s infectious smile put our six-year-old, Samson, at ease and she quickly engaged him in “helping her” with her job. As Rachel predicted, within a week, Samson was looking forward to his daily proton treatment.

Rachel’s understanding and honesty helped us, as his parents, maneuver an incredibly difficult situation by preparing us for possible side effects and suggesting remedies. If treatment was delayed for any reason, she called to let us know so that we did not have to spend extra time in the waiting room. She made all of our other doctors’ appointments for us so that we could focus on caring for our son. Rachel was more than our son’s nurse. She was our advocate and friend.”
