The Australasian Neuroscience Nurses Association recently lost a valued member and more importantly a great friend in Sharryn Byers. Sharryn was a long serving member of the association, a passionate Neuroscience nurse, patient and nursing advocate. She was a highly committed ANNA executive member over many years at both federal and state levels and was a proud life member. Sharryn was more than just a run of the mill member who paid her annual fees. She fell into Neurosurgical nursing early in her career and fell in love with the specialty – a love that never left her.
