Through the efforts of Hearts for Homecare Ambassador and Director Rose Sample, State Senator Nilsa Cruz-Perez made a visit to the home of Cherry Hill Pediatric client, Lindsay H. The Senator had the opportunity to meet Lindsay and her mother, Debbie, as well as some of the Pediatric Cherry Hill office staff and Susan Stout, one of the nurses who helps to take care of Lindsay.
According to Rose, both the client’s mom Debbie and nurse Susan were just blown away by the Senator’s compassion and concern. The Senator and Lindsay’s mom connected on a number of levels. Senator Cruz-Perez thanked everyone repeatedly and said it made her week to be there. In follow-up from the meeting with Lindsay’s mom, Debbie shared that, “She seemed like a wonderful and sincere person, and I feel so fortunate to have had the chance to get to know her and share stories.”
