This Woman Found the Nurse Who Saved Her Life 38 Years Ago
As a baby, Amanda Scarpinati was taken to Albany Medical Center in the USA, suffering from severe burns from a hot steam humidifier. During her recovery, a young nurse took care of her. The pictures of them together were published in the hospital’s annual report from 1977, which Amanda has been keeping throughout her life, hoping to find this woman and thank her.
These photos gave Amanda strength in the darkest hours of her life: “I took comfort looking at the pictures of a beautiful woman — a nurse who took care of me. Looking at them, I felt her love and compassion.”
For many years, Amanda had been unsuccessfully trying to find the nurse, whose name she couldn’t find in the report. In another attempt, she turned to social media and posted her story and photos on her Facebook page. The response came almost immediately — within a day — that this young nurse was Susan Berger.
