Fran Phelan Above beyond Because

Fran Phelan


Spending your birthday in a hospital is no fun… but don’t tell that to the nurses at St. Vincent’s HealthCare. Fran Phelan, a registered nurse, went above and beyond to make sure a cancer patient had the best birthday celebration possible. Since candles are not allowed, Fran got creative. She brought in a cake and along with fellow nurses sang happy birthday as the woman blew out the glow from a flashlight. Going above and beyond for patients isn’t part of Fran’s job. To her, it’s more like a calling. Fran Phelan may not be an actual saint, but to one cancer patient she came pretty close.
