Today, July 5th, is the 2nd anniversary of the passing of Daksha Brahmbhatt, RN, one of the original staff of the Phil Simon Clinic in Pasadena, CA. Two of the other “founders,” and dear friends of Daksha, Lyn Smillie and Tom Warren, RN, are asking for all to remember Daksha and her legacy on this day, by considering a donation in her name to the Nursing Scholarship Fund of the Phil Simon Clinic Tanzania Project. http://philsimontanzania.org/donate/
For anyone who had the privilege of knowing Daksha, or just meeting her would understand the immediate impact on your life and all whom she touched!
All who knew her knew that Daksha’s passion was nursing. In her memory, the Phil Simon Clinic Tanzania Project has created the Daksha Brahmbhatt Memorial Nursing Scholarship.
The first recipient of the Scholarship is an equally passionate and talented woman in Tanzania, Jacqueline Wilfred, who is currently attending nursing school in. To quote Jacqueline, “My passion for nursing is matched by my love for children, so my decision to specialize in midwifery comes from the heart”.
Does this remind YOU of anyone??
So in loving memory of Daksha, Tom Warren and Lyn Smillie are asking you to donate to this fund. Ask friends, contact families, share with people you know. Contact your nursing friends. Spread the word to everyone you know and keep Daksha’s Spirit alive.
With Love and Gratitude.
