Claire Wineland, is a brave 17-year-old girl with cystic fibrosis, and she presents an amusing list of the available perks that you can get during a hospital stay, something she unfortunately knows about. While some of the benefits include free cable, free Wi-Fi and someone to make your bed for you, her final point is really smart.
You know what the best thing about the hospital is? It’s the connections you make. You’re there to heal. You’re not there to be anything for anyone else thus all the BS is gone. You can actually make real connections, real friends with the nurses and the patients and you kind of make these amazing memories there that you never would make in your regular day-to-day life.
Get well, Claire. We need more people like you.
