Mother and daughter in Orange County make, donate candles to provide stress relief for healthcare workers

“I work in surgical ICU where we are taking care of the COVID positive patients,” said Vickie Nimmo, an RN at UCI Medical Center. “It’s a very stressful time, long shifts. Hopefully, I can use these candles, because it’s a stress relief candle. So hopefully it’ll reduce my stress tonight.” … “I think it’s great that the community helps support the people that are on the frontlines,” said Rita Frerk, a Registered Nurse at UCI Medical Center. “It feels really, really like we’re valued.”
