Like many families moving down here, my wife and I made our move to the Triangle area to start our new jobs. At first, we missed the charming Connecticut and New England area. However, after meeting new people and exploring Raleigh and its surrounding regions, we fell in love with the Triangle area. After 29 years of living here in North Carolina, I can confidently say that we made the right move.

Over the years, several WakeMed visits by me and my family members gave me the opportunities to learn more about the hospital. I was very pleased with the quality of services WakeMed offered, and I was even more impressed by the professional skills and compassion displayed by all the medical staff. Needless to say, I was inspired. I wanted to take part in giving back to the community, so I signed up to become a volunteer at WakeMed and have been for the past 14 years.

Currently, I volunteer in the Day Surgery Department at WakeMed North. I get to help the patients with guidance from the nurses. I always look forward to my volunteering day every Thursday.

Helping patients has provided me very fulfilling and rewarding experiences that I will continue to cherish.

I have made many new friends and always have a good time assisting wherever I can. I am honored to have the opportunity to be a part of the WakeMed North family.
