Dunwoody girl crafts beaded bracelets to thank local nurses

DEKALB COUNTY, Ga — Ten-year-old Brigid Quinn is spending her time at home crafting as a way to give back to nurses. She is using her gift cards from her birthday and Christmas to make beaded bracelets for them.

“If they’re in doubt with a patient, they can just look at their wrist and be like, I can do this,” said Quinn.

Each bracelet is different and comes with a special message that says, “Thank you, you are loved.”

“This was such an overwhelming gift. It means so much more than money or anything we could’ve gotten,” said Connie Masters of the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University.

Quinn sent bracelets to Northside Hospital and the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University, the hospital that has been treating her mother since she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2018.

“It was extra special because she was able to do something good for the part of Emory where it’s still a big part of our lives,” said Brigid’s mother Amy Quinn.

Brigid sent 100 bracelets to Winship for Nurses’ Week.
