This week’s Be Remarkable takes us to Bryan where a physical therapist has served as the emotional connective tissue keeping a family together during the pandemic.

“The words she used was an angel”, Danny Daniel, Stark Injury Lawyers

Corey Sleight has more than earned her wings since the coronavirus rocked the United States back in March. By all accounts she’s impacted a lot of lives working at Legacy Nursing and Rehabilitation.

Shannon Williams nominated Corey for this week’s Daniel Stark Injury Lawyers and KWTX Be Remarkable Award because of the work she’s done with her mom.

It comes at a time when residents at long term care facilities is limited.

“I just wanted to do something to let you know how much we love you.”, Shannon Williams

Shannon’s mother penny suffered a stroke just days before Christmas 2019, and a few months later, she moved into Legacy.

It’s there that Shannon says Corey has been instrumental in keeping her family connected by calling her dad Ron to make sure he knows when he can come down for window visits along with communicating all her mother’s struggles and successes.

“I wish I could do this with every family... talk with them personally. Help them in any way I can and just let them know their loved ones are being taken care of.”, Corey Sleight.

The $500 Be Remarkable Award presented by Daniel Stark takes care of those in the community that go above an beyond.
