She worked in the hospital's intensive care unit from February to September of 2012 and said she loved the group of nurses she worked with.
"I enjoyed seeing other nurses get it, get what nursing is," she said. "The best way I can describe it is getting the light bulb turned on, and I liked that as a nurse," she said.
But even as she worked as a nurse, Weber was also pregnant and undergoing treatment for nasopharyngeal cancer, which affects the adenoids and nasal system. She had been diagnosed in December 2011, and although she loved the work at St. Anthony's, she didn't feel as though she was able to keep it up.
