7W Nurse Sarah Demers Recognized by Rock Legend John Fogerty
January 21, 2021
One of our amazing nurses Sarah Demers, RN, from 7W caught the attention and admiration of rock legend John Fogerty, of the band Creedence Clearwater Revival.
Fogerty's music inspired Sara to share his songs with her colleagues at BMC during the pandemic. She wrote letters to the Fogerty family thanking them for their music. "It reminds me of togetherness, strength, compassion, something about it makes me want to keep going and save lives," said Sarah.
Fogerty sent one of his autographed guitars to Sarah in recognition of the amazing work that she and all of our nurses and frontline caregivers continue to deliver.
