KH Havertown Staff Walks and Raises $3,000 for Suicide Prevention
Havertown, PA -- On October 6, staff members from Kindred Hospital Philadelphia -- Havertown, along with family and friends, joined nearly 250,000 people walking in hundreds of cities across the country in support of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention's mission to save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide. We walked in memory of Stephen McGady.
On February 27, Kindred Havertown lost an amazing co-worker and friend to suicide. Stephen was such a sweet caring man and we miss him every day. Working a long hard shift will never be the same without Stephen to make us smile and laugh. He was so caring and kind to his patients and to all of us -- his thing was to bring in Wint-O-Green Life Savers to share with everyone. No matter what was going on in the hospital or with his patients, when Stephen was asked how he was, his response was always "super duper." Behind that exterior was a pain we did not know.
Stephen touched the lives of all of us and we will never forget this gentle man.
