Sandra, who has been a paraplegic for the past 26 years, is no stranger to riding in an American Ambulance due to emergencies created by her health condition.

However, on Feb. 21, Sandra was transported by American Ambulance to visit her mom, who is a resident at the Bride Brook Rehab Center in Niantic; it was a surprise that touched both their hearts.

Sandra had fallen into a depression after losing her brother last year; her long-term caregiver took a new position; there was a solemn January birthday and additional health concerns. So, I reached out to Greg B. Allard, vice president of American Ambulance, and asked if they would provide a humanitarian ambulance ride to someone “who needed her mom.”

I extend my heartfelt thanks to American Ambulance for extending themselves to brighten the day of a Norwich resident. Your kindness will be remembered always.
