How Patients Give Back
I am a nurse practitioner at Community Medical Care Center. I was so shocked and very proud to see my patient Ms. S at my door in the middle of the night when my husband passed away. You see Ms. S is working for a local funeral home. She looked so professional in her suit with her name tag. She gave me a really big hug. Here is a summary of her inspiring story. She came to our clinic in 2009, homeless, living at the Women’s Shelter. Her self-esteem was low; she was in need of some medical care and a lot of dental care. She was able to see our clinic doctors and the specialists she needed. Our dentist gave her a beautiful smile. I will never forget her smile, her hug and her concern as she comforted me in my hour of need. Ms. S has been employed at the funeral home for more than a year now. She is very close to completing her Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice. She would eventually like to work in the Medical Examiner’s Office. I am so proud of Ms. S for her perseverance and accomplishments. With God’s help we are able to touch the lives of many and rejoice in their success.
