If you know Missy Reynolds, then you probably know at least two truths about her: she genuinely loves Cecil County, and she is always very, very busy.
It was evident how much Missy did not want credit for all she does in our community. She doesn’t want a great deal of attention, but it is hard not to recognize someone with such a kind heart and an incessant drive for helping others in need.
Missy is a walking miracle as a five-time cancer survivor. Many of us probably cannot fathom having to fight the battle against cancer so many times. But Missy has. And instead of giving up, she decided that as a survivor, she wanted to give back to others who were going through what she had experienced, “I wanted to help patients and cancer patients with emotional support during their challenging times. After my fifth bout of cancer and health challenges afterward, my life changed. I believe God had other plans for me to be able to help patients in need.” Someone suggested that Union Hospital might be a good place for her to volunteer, and the rest is history.
“Union is the perfect community-based hospital. Everyone here is focused on helping the patients and each other. What I most love about volunteering here is everyone’s compassion to help the patients and give back to the community.”
Missy encourages everyone to consider volunteering at Union, “They would be part of a great community hospital with many volunteer opportunities.”
Thank you, Missy, for your many years of service to Union Hospital and the Cecil County community!
