We celebrated a lot of days just because Shakeria cared.

Look up the words kind and caring and you would see Shakeria Love. Shakeria has made me feel so confident and cared about. On the second day of being numb from my chemo, I had to wear a Depends because I couldn’t feel myself.

Shakeria entered my room and found me feeling devastated. At 58 years old, I had peed my pants. She sat on my bed, held my hand and assured me that this was normal for my diagnosis and told me that with my will and positivity she was sure things would work out for me. Every day, even if I wasn’t her patient, she would check in on me and my process. We celebrated a lot of days just because she cared. Thank you, Shakeria.
