Understanding the suffering of others has been a part of her since childhood

 “You can plan your life, but don’t expect it to turn out that way. You have to learn to accept what life offers you,” says Ashley Foabeh, Mercy College of Health Science’s 2015 recipient of the Outstanding Liberal Arts & Sciences Student Award. She is planning to graduate with a BSN degree — her third college degree — in 2017.

Write a Thank You Card to a First Responder for 9/11

Write a Thank You Card to a First Responder- A thank you is a simple act that can make a big difference in someone’s life.


In honor of 9/11 National Day of Service and Remembrance, Mercy College of Health Sciences is holding a thank you card writing event for first responders in the Des Moines community. It’s important that we don’t forget about the sacrifice that so many made on 9/11, but we also shouldn’t forget about the compassion and courage that the first responders in our community show every day.

Stop by our table next to the front desk in the Sullivan Center to write a card. The table will be set up until Friday, 9/11 at noon so the cards can be delivered that afternoon.

You’re also welcome to take a card and hand deliver it to a first responder who you personally know. Thank you cards will be provided.

Please join us in honoring those who protect and serve us every single day.
