Unexpected Friends

“I was on the fourth floor for three months waiting for my lung transplant,” recalls Carolene Newton-Mosley, a patient at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. Carolene had pulmonary fibrosis and made an unexpected group of friends. “I had the window, and I could see a UCLA Fraternity. One of my nurses knew someone at the frat and told them I was enjoying watching them. So they made a sign for me that they hung up on their roof. It said to ‘Keep up the good work and your good spirit. You rock.’ They also came to visit me twice. They brought me flowers and a bear. They stayed for a long time and talked with me. Now, I have my lung transplant, and I hope to go home for the holidays.”
