Mary insisted on pushing the doctor to get me to imaging and sure enough I had to have immediate surgery and stop my chemo.

Mary saved my patient from respiratory distress and called a rapid and stayed at the rapid helping give meds for a long time even with her own patient load, while I was pushing adenosine on a critically ill patient simultaneously in the next bed over in the same room. Mary went above and beyond the call of duty.

Mary saved my life. I walked every day, but this day I couldn’t. Mary got very concerned and knew something was terribly wrong. She insisted on pushing the doctor to get me to imaging and sure enough I had to have immediate surgery and stop my chemo. My cancer attached to my small intestine and blew holes. Thank you. Mary is also a "beyonder" who goes beyond the extra mile. Compassionate, caring, great at her job in every way. The walks keep me in great spirits. Thank you, Mary, for my life.

She’s definitely a keeper!
