A Florida native, Hands of Mercy Hospice administrator Laura Fraley has a passion for patients. Laura did her RN training in Winter Haven, Florida. Her 20 years of nursing have taken her to roles in med/surge, ambulatory surgery, pediatrics , endoscopy, infusion, chemo, lap band, and hospice. In her role coordinating Hands of Mercy she brings an excitement for living and an understanding of dying to patients and families alike. Laura is always available with a story to tell, an ear to listen, and a hand to hold. Laura tells the story of her grandfather, an Ohio businessman and inventor, who held the first patient for the safety cap for prescription bottles. He was a fiberglass manufacturer who developed lymphoma and spent his final days in the VA hospital in Lakeland Florida. That experience left Laura with the drive and compassion to help the terminally ill and treasure their days.
Laura loves being outdoors, spending time with family, and going to the beach.
Laura is a huge asset to Hands of Mercy!
