Barbara was a friend of mine since 1988 ... she was a nurse who took care of my kids at their pediatrician's office and she was a patient in my dental chair. She and her husband, Rick, continued to be friends of Matt's and mine, even after we moved to Florida in 2010. In November of 2020, Barbara passed away from Pancreatic cancer. This is a very special bracelet to me, and I am donating 10% of all of its sales to the Great 100 Nurses Foundation this year. This charity's mission is to recognize amazing nurses and to raise funds towards scholarships for deserving recipients. Barbara loved nursing, and I feel that this is a charity of which she would approve.
