Even longer than she’s had JDM, she’s had a calling. Our ER docs are here to help her along the way.

“I‘ve wanted to be a nurse as long as I can remember. I’m not sure why exactly. I’ve just always known. I’d like to be a pediatric nurse and work in a children’s hospital.

I have Juvenile Dermatomyositis Myositis (JDM) with multiple autoimmune diseases that affect almost every part of my body. We go to the ER a lot. I love the ER doctors at CHRISTUS St. Vincent. JDM is rare, and they work really hard to understand what’s happening and do all they can to help me. They follow up with my mom to make sure I’m okay. We didn’t have that where we lived before, and it’s so relieving to know how much they care and that they’ll always be there.”
