Kara Podjasek, NICU Nurse
Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital
Nominated by Lindsay Bertoncini
From the very beginning of our journey, Kara felt like family. She cared for our daughter like she was her own. She was an advocate for her care and always there to explain terms and procedures when we had questions. She was confidant, calm, and reassuring. We always knew our daughter was in experienced, loving, hands. Kara also took the time to document our journey with crafts such as artwork containing our daughter’s hands and feet and pictures on her 100th day. Items that we will cherish forever. Kara will always have a place in our hearts and our family.
