February 2nd marked the arrival of WHR’s second student in our professional development and education program. Landy, a 21-year old nursing student, arrived Casper where she will live with Helen Byrd and study English in preparation for continuing her nursing studies. Landy is a courageous and bright young woman. Her focus on finishing her nursing studies has helped her to overcome many challenges. When the earthquake occurred, she was in her dormitory at the national nursing school in Port-au-Prince. She suffered crush wounds to her leg and lost more than 80 friends and classmates as the dormitory collapsed. While convalescing in Les Cayes, she was tended to by Helen Byrd, RN, of Casper, WY. Helen was in Haiti with an early WHR medical team. Helen and Landy formed a bond without words; neither of them spoke each other’s language. As Helen left Haiti, she vowed in her heart to help Landy finish her nursing studies. To support Landy in completing her studies, you may make a tax deductible donation in her name to Wyoming Haiti Relief.
