Tricia Somers was diagnosed with a rare form of terminal cancer when she met Tricia Seaman, a nurse at the Pinnacle Health Hospital in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. "Before she even said anything, I just felt comfort.

    The faith in both women that it was the best and right act in the circumstance of imminent death. Nurse Tricia and her husband are mission-minded and open -hearted...and not fearful of adding on 2 dear people in need of loving support. Tricia (ill) looked into the loving soul of nurse Tricia and that spirit connection blessed them both!
