I became a caregiver at a very young age of 14 when no one would help my granny I became her help. I enjoy just comforting the elderly and letting them know they are not alone. When I was hit by a drunk driver I needed someone to care for me and there was no one so I was put in a nursing facility where they didn't supply good care yet the other patient began to come in and care for me and I made a promise that when I got out of the facility I would come and get them. I provided care to those fifteen terminal ill patients who were only given 3months to live. I gave them so much love that they each survived five years longer filled with the love joy and fun that I provided to each of them. Every day is our birthday and we lived each second on its own.
