As many American families prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving, registered nurses, including a DC RN, are offering their own gift of healing for the holidays – by volunteering to deploy to the Philippines to provide medical support for those affected by Super Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda.
One of those RN volunteers is Gandessa Orteza of Burtonsville, Md., a
surgical intensive care unit RN at Medstar Washington Hospital Center in
Washington, DC. Orteza, who was born in Quezon City, a part of
metropolitan Manila, says she still has a lot of family in the
Philippines, some in Iloeosur who she still has not heard from.
