I am beginning my 9th year as an ERRN/Coordinator for the BCCCP program which provides free pap smears and mammograms to uninsured women in this county. I love my job! It reminds me why I became a nurse. I collaborate with amazing people and my patients are special! During this past 8 years my mother Elizabeth Campbell donated $11,000 which provided funding to pay for mammograms for women in this program. I lost my mother in October. This holiday season was tough! However on New Years Eve I believe I was given a sweet gift which lifted my spirits! We attended the annual concert on the 31st at Reynolds Auditorium presented by the Winston Salem Symphony. There is a drawing and at the end of the concert 4 couples are picked to come on stage and dance the last waltz. Yep! Our names were drawn. My husband Jerry and I joined the group....except the 4th couple did not show up! As we danced on stage it occurred to me that the 4th couple was my mom and dad....Betty and Syl! They loved to dance. I know they were right there with me! It brought a tear to my eyes but a smile to my face which I desperately needed! Remember to love one another and enjoy many sweet moments in the new year.
