"...I’m here to help you through."
Satee Mathews, Ultrasound/Sonography Student
TranscriptWhen my sister was diagnosed with kidney failure it seemed like the most devastating news. However, in 2004, when my sister was only 38 years old, the Doctors in Trinidad and Tobago pronounced her dead, because there was nothing more that they could do to sustain her life. This was a crushing blow to our family but we still had hope and so my sister was air-ambulanced from Trinidad to Orlando, Florida at Orlando Regional Medical Center. Undoubtedly, the care that she received not only helped to restore her back to health, but those that cared for my sister, also cared for all who visited her – encouraging each of us to continually communicate with my sister (even while she laid unconscious in the Intensive Care Unit). It is because of my sister and the care that she received that I was inspired to write a song that touches on her journey as well as my philosophy of healthcare. “Alone You’ll Never Be” Do you know where you are right now? You look confused and scared, Your eyes are searching everywhere To find some answers here Chorus My friend, I’m here to help you through Come take my hand ~ let’s go The road is rough, the journey’s hard But alone you’ll never be. Your pain is great, your eyes in doubt Not sure what’s happening I’ll help you know the things I do To restore you back to health
