Patricia W. Fischer is romance author, journalist, and retired pediatric/adult critical care nurse who’s made her homes in Texas, New Mexico, Louisiana, and Missouri.

After having a fantastic time at the University of Texas (Hook ’em), she decided actually attending class would help her reach her long term goals faster.  She buckled down in eight years earned a Licensed Vocational Nurse certification, then an Associates in Nursing, and finally a Bachelor’s of Science in Journalism. During that time, Patricia worked in multiple fields of nursing including medical/surgical, recovery room, orthopedics, telemetry (ICU step down), and critical care before she settled into the unpredictability of the emergency room. For five years, she worked in a general ER before she ended up at Children’s Medical Center of Dallas, a Level 1 pediatric trauma center.

She retired from nursing in 2002 and started writing full time.

She has written for many publications including iVillage, Hot Mom’s Club, Modern Mom, Dallas Child, American Journal of Nursing, The Writer’s Edge, Nursing Spectrum, and Chicken Soup for the Soul Series.

For the past two years, she’s had a monthly book picks segment on San Antonio Living, a local morning show on WOAI. She’s a member of the San Antonio Romance Authors (SARA).

      I have two friends whom are 5+ years ovarian cancer survivors, lost one relative to it, and one friend was a survivor, but she was killed in a MVA.

      I have supported several charities over the years. I did the most work for CCFA as a support group facilitator and fundraising. I have Crohn’s.

      A friend of my mom’s suffered from post-partum after she had her son, and that was the first time I’d ever heard of it. (about 17 years ago) We all did a walk for awareness. And my husband & I support St. Jude’s as much as we can.

    3. Thank you for posting Denise and V!

      I think it’s essential that we give back to our communities in some form or fashion whether monetary or even just a bit of time with someone who needs to vent.

      I have a few friends who are breast cancer survivors. I am a huge supporter of the American Heart Association, after having a heart attack at age 44 and some additional stents since. Also, the diabetes foundations since diabetes runs in my family. Thank you for your reminder.

      I lost my mother to Ovarian cancer 25 years ago and I still miss her every day. I do wear teal because it’s one of my favorite colors. Thank you, Patricia, for bringing awareness to women everywhere. ❤️

      • Honored to do it. My BFF has been fightingvit for 6 years and one of the things she said I could do to help her out was to increase awareness.

        Plus, who doesn’t want to wear Teal? It’s a gorgeous color.

        Thank you for posting.

      My heart and passion gets placed into two charities and organizations.
      The first is National Ovarian Cancer Coalition, where I run the San Antonio Chapter and work to raise funds for research and provide quality of life programs for survivors (as well as work to spread awareness in our big community!).
      I also work with The Pink Berets which provides support to Female Veterans who experience combat and MST (military sexual trauma) related PTSD. 70% of women who serve experience MST. 70%!
