Finally, in October, Heidi Fisk, a patient, and her long-time love, Jerremie Duncan, celebrated their bond in an intimate marriage ceremony outside Duke University Hospital.
The couple had tried to hold a wedding on several prior occasions, but Fisk’s ongoing battle with kidney disease disrupted plans. Hospital nurses who learned of their story jumped into action by donating time and money to plan the ceremony and buy decorations and a wedding cake.
“They are true caregivers. They’re living our mission,” said Vonda Capps, nurse manager, of the nurses’ efforts.
Here’s hoping that 2017 at Duke Health is every bit as good as, if not better than, 2016.
