Donating to ST. JUDES CHILDREN’S RESEARCH HOSPITAL There are so many worthy causes. The one that had the most effect on me was the St. Jude children’s research hospital. I had recently donated money to the nearest retail store that had been collecting donations for this organization. I believed that this organization is a great cause not only because it cured my best friend, but also because they never turn their backs on any children that has a sickness. No family ever pays St. Jude for transportation, food, care, or housing.
In the 1950s Danny decided to fulfill his pledge, so began the fundraising efforts. Danny and with the support of local business leaders took several years to raise the money to build the hospital. St Jude opened on February 4, 1962. He challenged the medical staff at the new hospital to make his dream that “no child should die in the dawn of life” become a reality (St. Jude Children's Research Hospital). Danny Thomas mission’s for the hospital was to provide hope to families of children battling catastrophic diseases, but to also provide a place where no one was denied help due to race, religion or a family’s ability to pay (Better Business
Though, the community has expanded from 35,000 to 86,000, the amount of beds remained the same. The board members knew that an expansion needed to take place. The reason for this was because patients started to complain about the long waits and crowded hallways. Hallways were used for patient care and this caused the hospital to be warned about them not having a license for the upcoming year. It was decided that with the cost of 75 million, they would expand the hospital to 248 beds.
Although I am very thankful for all that I have learned, I cannot say that I have helped anyone but myself by taking this course. Yes I have spread helpful hints to my peers in the discussion board, and have carried the valuable knowledge I have been given to those close to me, but I have not actually put out a helping hand and made sure that my knowledge or help has been properly used. That is until I completed my service work assignment. For my service work assignment I donated money to the Greater Houston Community Foundation and designated it to the Curing Children’s Cancer fund. No, I did not take time out of my day to participate in a 5K run, nor did I dedicate a full day to helping the elderly at a retirement home, but I did make sure my knowledge and help was used to benefit my community.
Community corrections programs regarding drug offenders have seen explosive growth over the past ten years. Alternatives to incarceration programs designed for drug addicted individuals have be implemented in direct response to dramatic increases in drug arrests and convictions. Drug addiction is a treatable medical disease. Rehabilitation of the drug offender is cost effective and aims to reduce
But after starting the cardiac system in anatomy class I was hooked. However I was short lived, after finding no local colleges offered a degree in sonography. The idea relieved by my mother in law a nurse manger of a local cardiac cath lab, my true enforcer, in support to education; introduce me to the position of a radiologist cath lab technician. After being introduced to the field by showing for a day I knew it was love at first sight, I wanted to know more about radiology. I found the idea diagnoses imaging amazing because it gives a different perspective on the human body without having to do surgery, and I was fascinate by the suffocated technology and computers used to produce these imagines, I found that the field was a lot more complex then I originally guessed and
I have enjoyed a twenty-four year career of public service. I can recall countless of lives that I touched as a Paramedic. Two instances that touched my life while helping people were, the patient experiencing a diabetic coma after a drop on blood sugar, and the mother with no prenatal care that waited until the last minute to give me the honor of delivering her child. These patients were special to me and brought a great sense of accomplishment to my life. I first decided to become a nurse, because nurses are paid
She grabbed my hands and told me “You see these hands, with these hands you can help people remain healthy and live a stress-free life.” “It is the most popular drug free, surgery free healthcare system in the world.” From that day on Thanasi knew what he wanted to do with his life. He wanted to become a chiropractor and help people. Thanasi knew the only way to become successful in his own way was to become one with people and help them express life to the fullest, the way its suppose
At my age I cannot necessarily remember, but I can imagine from things I have read that in previous decades there was much more (meaningful) social interaction and camaraderie among Americans. The author pointed out that for many years labor unions were the most common organizational affiliations, yet this has fallen dramatically for the past five decades. Talking to people my parent’s age or older (60+) it always seems that membership in your trade’s union was par-for-the-course and an important part of their lives. The same goes for more informal groups of people who would meet for coffee or
Since I first applied to XXXX, I returned to my former employer and continued working as both a technical recruiter and contractually, as a designer. From the beginning of 2008 to present, I have been taking classes in preparation for nursing school. In my free time, I obtained a State and National certification in Phlebotomy and to act as a Healthcare Provider of BLS (Basic Life Skills – CPR and AED), completed an externship at XXXXXX Hospital in anyttown, USA and currently volunteer for Feeding America. More recently, I started providing home care for a close friend of mine who recently gave birth and is recovering from peripartum pubic separation (diastasis pubis) which is a separation of the pubic symphysis (cartilage) from the pubic bone during a vaginal delivery. Recovery takes 4-6 weeks.
