Woman Helps Methodist Fremont Health Patients With Crocheted Shawls

Nicole Gundersen is no stranger to the emergency department at Methodist Fremont Health.

She was a patient there two, three, sometimes even four times a month.

But during her visits, she bonded with Kendra Bloch, a nurse with whom she chatted about their children and about Gundersen’s crochet hobby.

Gundersen, 26, returned to present Bloch with handmade blankets for her son and daughter.

This week, Bloch stayed home with her sick son. He was wrapped up in the blanket Gundersen had made.

The act of kindness piqued the interest of Karen Baber, a medical social worker at the Fremont hospital. Baber recruited Gundersen to crochet prayer shawls for ailing patients.
