Mother and daughter donate stress relief candles to healthcare workers

“I work in surgical ICU where we are taking care of the COVID positive patients,” said Vickie Nimmo, an RN at UC Irvine Medical Center. “It’s a very stressful time, long shifts. Hopefully, I can use these candles, cause 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 UC Irvine Medical Center. “It feels really, really like we’re valued.”
