Kinga made such a difference that afternoon, displaying a true human connection.

My husband is a Multiple Myeloma patient at Northwestern Memorial Hospital who recently experienced several new complications with the disease. He was hospitalized for five days and Kinga exhibited extraordinary spirit and compassion every time she attended to him. But it was one afternoon that stands out. I was sitting in my husband’s room alone, as he was having a medical procedure. She simply came to the door and said, “Do you need anything?” I responded as usual and said, “No, I’m okay.” She looked into my eyes, came into the room, sat down and began to talk. I began to talk about my husband’s illness and our “therapy session” began. She has a special way of responding, that is a “gift.” This young lady made such a difference that afternoon, displaying a true human connection. Her nursing skills are stellar, and her ability to connect with people is extraordinary.
