Anne Bolam

At her family's request, Anne Bolam (née Peterkin), wrote a synopsis of her time as a nurse.

Since writing the book Don't Drop it, Nurse, Anne suffered a second stroke, but was determined to finish book two, despite difficulty with her eyesight.

Anne continues to be as active as she can. She enjoys going to church, playing the piano, and spending time with family and friends. Anne also loves being in the company of dogs.

Anne's motto continues to be:
Do the things you are able to do, and forget what you were able to do in the past.
