Cynthia Frost was nominated by two colleagues, who described her as "an exceptional nurse practitioner and a phenomenal human being." They went on to talk about Frost's exceptional support of patients and families. In particular, she recently recognized caregiver fatigue in the significant other of a patient who had a long and tumultuous road. Frost made sure to be extra-attentive to this spouse and offered not only encouraging words, but reminders for self-care. According to her nominators, "the difference in that patient's loved one was tangible. As the week passed, they became more hopeful and at peace. It was profound to see the impact of this simple gesture, so thoughtfully given."
