Todi Auker

Todi Auker, RN, BSN

East Texas Medical Center-Jacksonville

Todi went over and beyond to take care of my mother, showing her not only quality care but love and respect. My Mother bonded with Todi and relied on her heavily during her last days. Todi was not only a source of support and comfort for my Mom but to her large family as well. Todi's care and concern for our Mom touched us all. My brothers, who are both doctors, said it best, "The definition of a nurse is Todi".

One instance of Todi's care stands out. She found out my Mom's favorite singer was Ronan Tipman, the Irish tenor. Todi found his music on her phone and played it for my Mom during her bath. I loved the smile it put on my Mom's face. On behalf of our family, I nominate Todi for the DAISY Award.
