Nora Marceau, RN

Back to Little Fighters Features

Thirty-one years ago, Honora “Nora” Marceau was born with a congenital cystic malformation on the lower right node of her lung. She spent the first days and weeks of her life in the Baker Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Crouse Hospital

As a part of the Crouse NICU team, she worked alongside Cathy O’Connor, RN, who cared for Nora when she was a newborn on the unit. “I remember being assigned to her,” recalls Cathy. “She was just the prettiest baby. And she’s grown into a beautiful young woman and a caring, skilled, empathic nurse.”

Nora says she doesn’t recall anything special about her childhood, except hearing stories about how the doctors and nurses at Crouse saved her life. “I don’t think I realized the gravity of the situation my parents went through until I had children of my own,” she says. “I always loved babies and wanted to be a nurse, and have had a chance to give back by taking care of our newborns and their families.”
