A Special Moment Shared with Family and Friends

Lisa Powell is one incredible woman, and she has an even more incredible son, Daniel. Dan has been a patient on Eastern Maine Medical Center’s Pediatrics Unit far too many times. This guy is a gem, and those who have the pleasure of meeting him understand.

Dan’s mom proudly serves in the Maine Air National Guard, and she was recently up for promotion from Technical Sergeant to Master Sergeant. However, due to his illness, Dan was going to miss the celebration commemorating his mother’s achievement. On Thursday, September 6, Lisa’s fellow ‘Maineiacs’ brought the ceremony to Dan, on EMMC’s Grant 8 Pediatrics. And, what a celebration it was!

Thanks to the caring staff in Pediatrics, Dan was able to see his mom graduate, and also got to hear the accolades and thoughtful remarks about his mom. Lisa’s promotion came 21 years after she enlisted, and was bestowed on her due to her aptitude to maintain responsibility for this upper rank; she is now in the top three non-commissioned enlisted ranks! Congratulations, Lisa, and thank you for your service!

Eastern Maine Medical Center and EMHS hospitals across Maine are becoming Northern Light Health on Monday, October 1, 2018.
