Collingswood Nurse Wins ‘America’s Greatest School Nurse’ Contest
Collingswood nurse Patti Butler won the title of "America's Greatest School Nurse" after spotting leukemia symptoms in a kindergartner and saving his life.
Last September, Nurse Patti Butler suspected something was wrong with one kindergartner, Nathan, when he complained of pain in his leg and didn't want to play outside. Then she noticed something more: his skin was translucent.
Patti alerted his mother, Nicole, and insisted Nathan be taken to a doctor for it to be checked out. Thanks to Patti's insistence, Nathan's leukemia was quickly treated and is now in transmission.
Nicole tells CBS Philly, she credits Patti for saving her son's life. Watch below:
