“I’m the first person patients speak with when they arrive at CURE and the first person to see their deformity. When I see the patients leave the hospital healed, I am overwhelmed with joy! Seeing the stories of these children come full circle is the best seat to me. It gives me joy to tell children with deformities that I see throughout the city to come see us at CURE! I’m truly happy to work here.”
