“I spent four days in the CICU where the entire staff made my stay more manageable… but I would be remiss if I did not single out and provide a specific thank you to Kelley Lazor, my overnight nurse. I have been in the education profession for over 40 years and I have come to recognize that the most important quality to exhibit when people are uncomfortable, anxious, or concerned is to interact with them in a manner that makes them feel better about their situation. Kelley did just that. She was kind, sensitive, caring and willing to help me in any way needed. If I was in pain, she was there. If I was emotionally down, she was there… Kelley did what she did because she cared. I would venture to suggest that she exhibits the same caring attitude to each of her patients.… She made me feel special. There will always be a special place in my heart for her. She is ‘one of a kind’ and one who can make magic happen.”
