Joy Dusek arrived at Hotel Dieu Shaver Rehab nearly ten years ago after a horrific automobile accident. The accident took her boyfriend's life and left Joy with some brain trauma. Upon arriving to Hotel Dieu Shaver, Joy was greeted by Mary Kukaryshen (Mary K), Registered Practical Nurse. The brain trauma caused Joy to speak Dutch when she awoke, and ironically Mary K was also Dutch and could speak fluently. The conditions could not have been better.

When Anne Angelone arrived for her third time here at Hotel Dieu Shaver in early January, she was welcomed to the same room, and the same bed, as her previous visit. “It was surreal,” says Anne. Then, incredibly, she was greeted by the same nurse, Mary Kukaryshen.
