N.J. Nurse Goes Extra Mile for Coronavirus Patient

 In Nurses Weekly

Marie Lancaster, 82, was alone in her home and suffering from coronavirus.

Her family said she couldn’t get through a sentence without losing her breath and feared for her life.

New Jersey nurse Lisa Cifalino heard about Lancaster’s condition and didn’t hesitate to help. She drove to Queens where she found Marie struggling to breathe.

“I thought I was going to die, she just gave me hope, hope and nothing but hope and love,” Lancaster said.

After a week at Holy Name Hospital, Lancaster’s condition began to improve.

Her family calls Cifalino their angel.
