This nurse was with us when the doctor told us he found cancer on the colonoscopy. After the doctor left the room, she offered to pray with us. She said such a beautiful, touching prayer for my husband. She embraced both of us and provided words of encouragement. She exemplifies compassion, empathy and caring. She established a special connection with both of us, at such a vulnerable moment in our lives. She is an exceptional nurse and very deserving of this award.
