  • Employee of the Month

    Mireles Estella

    Estella Mireles, PCA

    4 East

    "On Christmas morning, when my hair was shedding like a dog because of my chemotherapy, Estella went out of her way to find me clippers to cut off the rest of my hair. As Estella was preparing me for a shower, I asked her if she would shave my head and she said yes. There were lots of tears in that moment, but I was grateful to have someone to talk to and hold my hand."
