Thanks to Ashley in Gresham for sharing this beautiful story about a Portland teen.
A Portland teenager is giving back to the health care workers who were by her side during her childhood.
Doctors diagnosed Holland with a vascular disorder when she was just 5 years old. She underwent three brain surgeries and has been in and out of Doernbecher Children’s Hospital most of her life.
Holland is now 18 and learned she qualified for a wish through Make-A-Wish Oregon. So, she decided to give back to those who cared for her by transforming the break room on the tenth floor.
This week, she cut the ribbon on the new room, which includes customized artwork, appliances, furniture, and even a massage chair. The nurses were beyond gratefu
Holland says she wanted to wish for something impactful that nurses and staff can use for years to come.
