Lindsay Onufrock Erhardt left her Moorhead home October 4th 2011 departing for Kitale, Kenya to begin a baby orphanage rocking nursery.
She lived there for about 9 months with her husband TJ and 3 young children including 9 month old Alayna. She then went on to form a new non profit , the Jua Project, to help women & children
in slums of Kenya become self sustainable. She is now returning home to the United States and Moorhead and will continue her non profit
here with people in place in Kitale to continue it there.
She started traveling to Kenya back in 2002.
In Kenya alone, there are approximately 1.9 million orphaned children.
Lindsay is the living essence of Theodore Roosevelt’s quote “Do what you can. With what you have. Where you are.”
The world needs more Lindsays! She is always positive, she is beautiful inside and out with a mighty heart and more courage than anyone I’ve ever known!
Mary is one of those people that I wish I could be more like.
She is one of the most caring, compassionate people one will ever meet.
Mary works in the Cardiac Cath Lab where people go if they are having a heart attack.
She is usually the nurse who is right next to the patient holding their hand and talking them through one of the scariest moments of their lives.
All her co-workers love her, her patients love her and her family love her and we are all so proud of her.
She also “adopted” some of my sisters friends who are going to school in Jamestown from other countries.
She makes sure they all have warm enough clothing for our tough winters and has them all over for holidays since they can’t go home.
She is always making others feel wonderful.
And that’s why we love her! Kristi Fabre
I am nominating my 27-year-old daughter Kristi.
Kristi became ill with E.coli bacteria poisioning at age 6, sustained permanent kidney damage and required a kidney transplant when she was 10.
She not only survived but thrived during her growing up years. She was married on the 14th anniversary of her transplant. This past year it was necessary for her to receive another transplant – this time her donor was her husband.
Kristi has dealt with more issues in her young life than most people ever deal with.
Kristi chose to become a nurse and is employed at Sanford.
Her life of doctor appts. and hospital stays have greatly influenced her career choice – she’s an incredibly caring and compassionate nurse as she knows all too well how it feel to be the patient.
She is a wonderful daughter, sister, wife, aunt and hopefully someday a mother.
