VNA employees donate to local families As a husband and father, Scott Stamps knows he can’t afford to flinch in his personal fight against the unforgiving foe of cancer. But hard financial times forced him to face a fear many parents would find almost as daunting as his diagnosis: telling his daughter that Christmas—at least in the material sense—wouldn’t come to their home this year. “My daughter is older—she’s 15,” the 46-year-old Palm City resident said. “She doesn’t get a lot and doesn’t expect anything. But to not be able to do anything—it was a little stressful. We had absolutely nothing under the tree.” Fortunately, Christmas did arrive in abundance at the Stamps’ home, however, thanks to the Visiting Nurses Association of Florida. “When it comes to our patients we really try to treat the health and well being of the whole person,” said Don Crow, CEO of VNA of Florida. “Our nurses make it a point to know not only our patients’ medical issues but also their families, their cares and their concerns.

VNA Foundation Registered NurseSTUART — It was an emotional morning Tuesday at the Challenger School in Stuart when the school’s former nurse helped present electronic reading equipment in memory of two students who died this year from their disabilities. Hannah Zechiel, 16, of Sewall’s Point, died March 8. James “J.W.” Young, 19, of Stuart, died June 23. Registered nurse Sheila Moore had known both students since they were young children, when she was assigned by the Visiting Nurses Association of Florida to serve as the school nurse at Challenger for four years. On Tuesday, she was back with VNA CEO Don Crow, presenting a $700 Califone Card Reader Master Set in the students’ honor. “On paper, I was the school nurse. I gave out meds. I put on bandages. But I also fell in love with the kids here,” Moore said, laughing to keep from crying. “Recently we lost these two. This electronic library will help them live on.” The card reader set includes recording equipment, three reading uni
