    Thank you for being the two best humans I know. The strongest and greatest support system a daughter/nurse could have.- Isabella Dolente '17

    Isabella Dolente '17 is a nurse who is working to combat COVID-19 in Philadelphia. Her parents, small business owners Carl and Lisa Dolente P'17, P'23 from Haddon Heights, New Jersey, were so proud of their daughter on the front line of the pandemic that they made shirts that say, "Not All Heroes Wear Capes. My Daughter Wears Scrubs." The saying was sent to them from Scranton staff member Lynn King Andres '89, P'17, director of the Parents' Executive Council (PEC). The couple, members of the PEC, sent the T-shirts to the family and friends of Isabella's nurse colleagues. Their daughter, Miranda, is a first-year student at Scranton.

    Isabella responded to her parents' generosity by posting a thank you on her Facebook page, "Before all this, I can say that I’d taken my parents hugs and kisses for granted. I have not missed something more. Thank you for being the two best humans I know. The strongest and greatest support system a daughter/nurse could have."

    Isabella continues to help patients in the ER at her hospital, while her parents donate food to her and her colleagues. 

    "Seeing them through the window when picking up dinner from their house hit home for me because all I wanted to do was hug them, squeeze them forever and thank them endlessly for being the best," wrote Isabella in her Facebook post.
