Debra Garrison’s Story

“I was diagnosed in 2009 with rheumatoid arthritis and scleroderma, which resulted in severe chronic ulcers on my feet and ankles. I told my doctor that I wanted to go to Drake, because I knew they had good wound care. If I let the ulcers go any longer, I wouldn’t be able to walk. All the nurses were nice to me and knowledgeable. I appreciated that they’d ask, ‘What works best for you?’ They individualized my care and worked with me. I’d recommend Drake to anyone, because of the care I received. I feel blessed because I’m still here and my scleroderma is limited. It doesn’t stop me from what I’m called to do…to look out for others, like the Good Samaritan. I’ve done that my whole life.”
