"After more than 30 years in healthcare, I am still touched by how healthcare workers continue to give more and more of themselves for the good of another human being. I suppose I should not be surprised at this, but I am repeatedly humbled by stories and incidents of compassion and self-sacrifice that have surfaced.

I don't think that there is just one person who influences me most in my work. There have been so many teachers and so many lessons. From senior workmates who have selflessly shared their wisdom, skills and experience, to colleagues who gave of themselves when the going gets tough, and the ah ma who always has a smile to greet you in the morning, despite her multiple medical problems."
