Through hardships and struggles, the work of a hospital nurse never relents and is never acknowledged enough. Susan Shapiro has selflessly worked for the Mayo Clinic for 40 years, dependable in her gifts of empathy and grace. She continues to go above and beyond the call of duty by sewing cloth masks at home for friends and co-workers.  She continues to work at St. Mary’s Hospital on the floor with Covid patients, serving others before herself.
