Friday night was a long anticipated night for one of our Nero patients. I’ll call her Mary. Mary’s son plays for Hamilton High School’s football team, and on the night of their homecoming the senior football players are escorted out onto the field to meet their coaches by their parents. 5 years ago Mary had a brain tumor removed that left her in very disabled state. However, with lots of work she has made remarkable progress in the last year. She has begun speaking a little and walking very well. It was her goal to walk her son out on the field. So with the help of her sister, her son, and one of out therapy techs Mary was able to reach her goal, and walk with her son! It was so amazing, and wonderful for her and her family.
I am really going to miss my job. The patients are so inspiring! I’ve been so privileged to be part of their lives.
