Stories from the Heart

The Will To Walk

The simple act of putting one foot in front of the other is one of those things that most of us take for granted. It’s not until we are faced with the prospect of losing this ability or having to relearn it that we realize how it important it is to our health, happiness and independence.

Matt Whitesides - Our Heart is in the Home

Matt Whitesides

Matt loves helping people. And for the past year, he’s been helping our patients begin their care at Mount Evans. “It’s my job to make sure the patient is seen by one of our clinicians within 48 hours depending on their care needs. The best moments are when a patient says ‘thank you for taking care of us so quickly.’ I know that I’ve done my best to get someone the help they need, and I go home happy.”

Pam Reitan

Pam’s heart and her creative talents have no bounds. Anyone who has attended the Mount Evans Gala can attest to artistic masterpieces. She was the chair of this year’s decorating committee for the We Heart the 80s Annual Gala.

Mary Noonan

For more than a decade, Mary has been helping mountain residents and their families navigate the hospice waters in a way that is meaningful and provides the greatest comfort.

James Weise - Our Heart is in the Home

James Weise

As an occupational therapist, I make sure our patients can function safely during everyday activities. The rewarding part of my job is keeping people in their own homes. As an organization Mount Evans has real heart and soul. They truly care about their patients, and I love being part of that. I work in many old historic towns and people have often been in their homes all their lives, sometimes for three generations. If I can help keep a patient in their own home, then I’ve made a difference.”

Sallie Wandling, Senior Director of Camp Comfort

Sallie Wandling

As the founder of Camp Comfort, Sallie knows that the key to camp is that children can look around and realize, ‘I’m not alone in my grief.’ “Seeing children evolve and open up during their weekend grief journey is amazing. The hugs, the conversation, and the smiles are worth everything. To provide such a safe and fun place where a child can be silent or crying in a support group and then be joyful when they are participating in an activity is truly heartwarming. Camp Comfort is simply a part of my heart.”
