Canadian nurse travels to Florida to donate stem cells to a man battling leukemia
I was so excited that I was found as a match for someone...I was all-in the second I found out! Despite the pandemic, I couldn’t refuse to travel knowing that I could save someone’s life.
“Traveling during the pandemic was pretty stressful for me. I am a Nurse Clinician working in the hospitals and it was a source of stress knowing I would be flying in these times,” said Emelie. “Working in health care makes you hyper aware of how many millions of people are suffering from COVID-19. However, despite the pandemic, I couldn’t refuse to travel knowing I could save someone’s life.”
