Beau Xavier Watson

Beau Watson was born in Long, Island, New York and lived there with his family right up until he started Med School at New York University, which was where he met BFF and brother from another mother, Liam Morgan. The hit it off immediately and started a carefree period of dating, that eventually came to an end when they just got too busy to keep the romance well-balanced. They stayed best friends, though, and remain that way to this day. Beau was the only non-blood related person Liam kept close to him in the wake of his horrible ordeal. He now lives in New York City with his big brother, Aaron, who is a flight paramedic and three older than Beau. Upon graduation, Beau hopes to specialise in Oncology, and is now doing his internship under the wise guidance of Oncology Senior Attending at Mount Sinai Hospital, Dr Tara Campbell.

Beau's decision to become an oncologist very much stemmed from personal experience. When he was eleven years old, after a period of continuous colds and flus that worried his parents, he was diagnosed with leukemia. It was something that forced his young mind to open up to the world and face the prospect of dying head-on. He coped like a trooper, much to his family's awe and despite it being touch and go for a few months when Beau was isolated to bed rest when his body was just too weakened, he fought the disease when he went into remission at age fifteen, and survived. It was during the intensive and invasive treatments that he decided he wanted to become a doctor, Oncology as a specialty was just the natural progression for him. One thing that has stuck with him ever since her own fight with cancer was sitting with his grandpa on his garden swing a few weeks after the news of his remission came. He was explaining to him how she nearly died, and he wasn't scared about going to heaven. His grandpa had merely smiled at him, kissed his nose and said "You only got halfway to Heaven, kiddo. Stop and enjoy the view." Since then, it has forever been his outlook on life, and something never too far from his mind.

Now one of the top students in his class, Beau is proud of his job and takes much pride in being able to help his patients like his doctors helped him when he was a kid. He has forged some lasting friendships with some of his patients, and although it always comes with a saddened sense that you could be working against the clock, he is proud that he can help make his patients comfortable in what could be their final days.

The "I" in illness is isolation, and the crucial letters in wellness are "WE".

Beau is one of three children, with two older brothers above him. He has a caring and friendly persona with a happy-go-lucky jokester streak that often succeeds in making even his most ill patients smile. It's impossible to have anything but a caring and compassionate bedside manner in an area of medicine like Oncology. He likes to have fun, doing things like going to the movies, picnics, walking on the beach, and reading a book in the park on a sunny day.

He swings both ways, but it generally more often swings to male interests, and the only successful and serious relationship he had was with Liam. He has time for friends, but it was always going to take someone unique and intriguing for him to stop and consider falling in love again because he's not willing to sacrifice his hard working career for the sake of half-assed relationships. So far, even though he thought once Liam could be, he hasn't found The One and sometimes wonders if maybe he just stopped looking when it became more important to her to focus on his patients.
