Thank you to those who participated in our #NursePraiseLove giveaway. Each of the entries illustrated just how much nurses enrich the lives of their patients and peers.
The randomly chosen winner of the $500 Southwest gift card is Shannon Mickelson. Read her inspiring entry below:
“Tracey was a lung transplant patient who had Cystic Fibrosis. She was so young, beautiful, and had her whole life in front of her. She always had such a positive outlook on everything! Her mom loved her so much; she rarely ever left her side. One day as I was going over and administering her medications, Coldplay's "Yellow" was playing. Now, whenever I hear that song it forever reminds me of Tracey, up in heaven looking down on me, helping to remind me that we are all here to help one another and leave a positive impression on everyone around us. Tracey helped teach me the meaning of true compassion, and I will be forever grateful!”
Thank you for sharing your story, Shannon. We hope you enjoy a nice trip, on us!
