Linda Perrin

Linda Perrin, Grateful Patient and Planned Giving Donor, in Her Own Words

“I had never been hospitalized before, but I needed spine surgery for scoliosis. My physician gave me a clinical book to read before my surgery, encouraged me to get a second opinion, and had me speak with another patient to reassure me and help me understand what I should expect postoperatively.

“After my surgery, my doctor marched me around the hospital to show me off! He was so pleased with my results, and I loved that.

“The staff at New England Baptist was wonderful; the caregivers are so careful and thorough. Every step of the process is personal—everybody knows who you are. I am a retired nurse, so I know this is different.

“My doctor and New England Baptist Hospital gave me a second life. I am back to traveling, knitting, and spending time with my young grandchildren. I am so grateful. I made a bequest because I knew it would help to accomplish some good for the Hospital. It’s like giving the Hospital a present in honor of my physician, who is a wonderful doctor and human being.”
