About a year ago, a local women noticed she was falling quite frequently, which eventually landed her in the hospital. She only stayed in the hospital for about a week and after a series of tests they were unable to discover the cause of her progressive weakness/fatigue. Her financial situation has limited her hospital stay and is now limiting any rehab that would be beneficial. She is an extremely down to earth, positive person and the mother of three boys. She was in need of a helping hand in this tough situation. Students in the Neuromuscular II class in St. Augustine decided that this would be a great opportunity to not only get hands on experience with a patient but to also give back to the community by raising funds to help. Students decided to design the t-shirt pictured to sell as their fund-raising effort.
Remember that this patient is a part of the community that helps enrich the educational experience by volunteering their time so that the students get hands on experience. So this was an opportunity for us to help give back to the community!
