Yesterday was International Nurses Day.
We would like to take a moment to acknowledge our dedicated nurses, Jacqui and Nancy - who provide care and love to the very special children Little Feather Foundation supports.
Not only do these ladies provide voluntary ongoing, everyday hands on care - they are also asked to put their heart on the line for every child, make some difficult medical decisions on the children's behalf, to educate everyone involved in the children's lives in how to provide the specialised care that they need, and are on call whenever emergencies arise.
We also want to acknowledge the incredible local nurses who have become an essential part of our team. We are honoured to be able to share the children with them and work together to ensure that the children are as comfortable and pain-free as possible.
"Nursing is an art: and if it is to be made an art, it requires an exclusive devotion as hard a preparation as any painter’s or sculptor’s work."
