Curtis from Virginia

Being raised by my grandparents gave me a good view on what we should do for our elderly when they aren't able to do for themselves. As I finished highschool, I had to tend to my grandmother day and night. It stopped me from living a normal high school life but it made me the guy I am today. I work at a Homehealth now and I love being able to give the people I work with a reason to smile they feel loved again. I cherish what I do because I know eventually I'll be depending on the same help from others.
