Dear Ellen,

What I want in life is to be able to have successful career as a pediatric nurse and provide for my father who has been such a great parent to me and my sister since my mother passed away in 2009. My mother is the reason why I want to become a nurse because she was always in and out of the hospital and the nurses were so kind to her. I am a 21 year old and I am still going to a community college; I am planning to transfer soon but I fear that I will not be able to pay for school since my dad is retiring soon because he is reaching the age of retirement. What I want in life is simply be able to afford school and work towards being the best nurse I know I can be. I want to show my dad that he no longer needs to worry about me and school and that it is time for me to take care of him.
Through working hard, I would also want to donate money towards researching a cure for lupus. Lupus is an autoimmune disease that my mother had which effected her kidneys and her heart, causing her to pass away at the age of 52. My cousin who also had this disease, died at the young age of 24. It is a relentless disease that I would like to see less people suffering from.

My mother and I used to always watch you on the TV. I just want to tell you that you are an amazing person that can put a smile on just about everyone's face. Thank you for being you!
