“I am hospitalized for [medical condition]. When Laurel came into my room, from the get go, she attended to EVERYTHING I needed. She explained everything that was going on with my medications and procedures. I am going through an especially hard time in my personal life. She took time out to sit and listen to what was going on with me as I cried. I felt I was at the end of my rope. She helped put things in perspective with no judgment. Let me tell you, I felt a peace I didn’t feel before she hugged me. This young woman is AMAZING! You better hold on to her. People like her are hard to find. I was so impressed with the care she gave me and the time she took to actually listen to me, made me feel that I mattered!!
Love you Laurel!!” – L.B.
