About Darcus

I worked in a hospital and I was only a food server then. I wanted so much to help people who couldn't help themselves but, because of being a food server, I could only offer the best food. Yet my ache grew stronger to help people. Finally I met someone who helped me and suggested that I become a care give and it is so rewarding when I help someone. it satisfies me. An achievement for me would be a certain someone I helped and cared for. That before he left he knew there were authentic people that sincerely care and love him. I am a loyal, courteous, and integrous individual and I await the chance to meet with you. I'm sure it will be a pleasure.
