Lori Mesko, a registered nurse, works on Botsford Hospital’s 2 South Progressive Care Unit, where she met Marjorie Fisher, who peacefully passed away Dec. 2, surrounded by her family.
Mrs. Fisher's daughter, Peggy Fisher-Kmieciak, sent a note to the hospital describing a simple act of generosity that not only brightened her mother's life, but also convinced her to take some life-saving medicine.
"Lori needed to find a way to convince Mom to accept the treatment. She started by giving a lot of encouragement to Mom. Just then, I noticed Lori’s beautiful bracelet. She said her friend had made it for her. Mom admired the lovely bracelet too.
"With a twinkle in her eye, Lori made a deal with Mom. She could have the bracelet only if she would drink the whole glass of medicine."
