Even medical issues haven’t been able to hold her back. Brian took a leave of absence one year to get her hip fixed but continued to volunteer faithfully after her recovery.
“A lot of the people come through, and the people don’t feel very good, and if they have to go to the lab, I go with them,” Brian described her job. “I go with them to medical records to get their little tapes or that sort of thing.”
“Mostly, I think it’s just to make the patients feel better,” Brian said. “To me, that’s why I like to work up there.”
Brian remembered a woman who was waiting to have tests done in radiology one day.
The patient was scared and considering going home instead so Brian said she simply began talking with her and sat and visited with her as time passed.
“I can distract,” Brian said with a laugh.
