About Sharon

I BECAME A CAREGIVER BECAUSE I LOVE PROVIDING CARE TO ELDERLY CLIENTS. I LOVE TO SEE THEM WITH A SMILE ON THEIR FACE. I WAS A CAREGIVER TAKING CARE OF AN ELDERLY PATIENT 4 YEARS AGO BUT SHE DIED FROM CANCER. SHE HAD BEEN RECEIVING CHEMO AND RADIATION. SHE WAS LIVING ALONE WITH HER DAUGHTHER ASHLEY TENDING TO HER FINANCES WHILE LIVING IN OKLAHOMA. I FOUND OUT BOUT MRS. THOMAS FROM GOING TO CVS PHARMACY PICKING UP MEDICINE FOR MY SON WHO IS BLIND IN HIS RIGHT EYE. SHE WOULD ALWAYS GREET ME WITH A SMILE. AS TIME WENT BY ONE DAY SHE WASNT FEELING TO GOOD AND I AND ANOTHER CUSTOMER SAW HER GETTING INTO HER CAR AND NOTICED SHE HAD LEANED AGAINST THE CAR AND WE CALLED THE AMBULANCE TO ASSIST HER. I WENT TO VISIT HER IN THE HOSPTIAL AND FROM THEN ON I BECAME HER CAREGIVER
