Celebrating Payton

Lee and I stayed at the Lumberton, NC for a special occasion. One of my patients who I worked with at UNC Hospitals was graduating nursing school and I was able to attend her pinning ceremony. Years ago I met Payton when she was a patient at UNC Hospitals, I was her Child Life Specialist and was able to help her and her family cope with her diagnosis and treatments. To be able to watch Payton grow from the sick vulnerable little girl I met to a beautiful talented women is amazing. I love that she is dedicating her life to be a nurse and wants to help others who are sick. She knows first hand what it is like to be a patient and be hospitalized for prolonged periods of time. Seeing Payton and her family again was amazing and I look forward to seeing how she changes the world, one patient at a time. We are Survivors!
