yes I’ve had a near death experience before I almost dropped my instrument once
Such a rewarding day today. Sometimes I get caught up in all the bad things going on in the world, the violence, the cruelty, the lack of humanity, but days like today inspire me.
I visited a breast cancer clinic in the city that provides screenings and other preventative care to underinsured women. They provide all their services for f r e e. And when you’re talking cancer care, costs add up like crazy. But with the help of support from foundations and corporations and private donations, some incredible women provide such important care to women who need it. They try to get rid of obstacles that prevent women from coming to their screening appointments, reaching out, educating them about their health, and making the entire process smoother.
The lady I shadowed was so compassionate and welcoming and took such good care of the patients. She said, “Just because these women aren’t paying doesn’t mean they don’t deserve good quality care.” And she worked so hard to make sure they were well taken care of. In a rather personal exam, she made patients feel comfortable. Basically an awesome nurse practitioner. But anyway, knowing people like this exist inspires me because the work they do takes such selflessness and dedication.
A wonderful way to spend Eid :)
