#humansofstcharles And its just like Why not? Ya know. What do I have to lose to try to make this happen. Ok, lets give it a go.'' So I just started writing grants and the worst I could hear was no. And I dont even know how many I wrote but I would say I had a 50% refusal rate. But thats how grant writing goes, ya know, you just need enough. -Darlene, St. Charles Prineville RN, on the process she and other community members went through to build the Prineville Bike Park

#Humansofstcharles ""You dont have to have an order for it. It''s free. It doesnt cost anything. You dont have to wake up the doctor in the middle of the night. Its, ya know, not a chemical in their body. Its an easy way to calm somebody down, to lower their blood pressure, their heart rate and anxiety."" -Tammy, RN, St. Charles Prineville, on playing the piano and singing for/with patients

#humansofstcharles ""I had a chance to care for grandfather, my husbands grandfather, after he fell ~ he is now 105. So I took care of him for a month and he just really loved it and he told me, he gave me a compliment, ''Ive never seen anyone take care of a person like you'' I was really happy to hear that. Then yeah, I started working in helping people ... when they are in pain and I make them smile or feel better it just makes my day. I feel warm from them."" - Young, Certified Nursing Assistant, St. Charles Redmond

""We as women, we look at womanhood as our hair and our breasts and a lot of women are losing their hair due to treatment or having to cut off their breasts because of the cancer. And they dont feel beautiful and they dont feel that amazing. To see the words saying, hey, you are beautiful, bald is beautiful its such an impact for them. - Wendy, St. Charles Cancer Center #humansofstcharles
