Cheryl's mother died at only 47 years old due to complications of diabetes and pressure ulcers. "My life changed dramatically on what I wanted to do and how I could save someone else from that happening to them."
Cheryl used her pain from the loss to fuel a passion for wound care and pressure ulcer prevention. She has contributed over 260 published white papers, ebooks, blogs, and articles both freelance and with WoundSource since 2014. "We are all a care giver at one point in our lives," says Cheryl.We should all know this information."
Cheryl talked about the importance of shifting our mindset from wound care to wound prevention. Being educated on how we can help ourselves and others prevent pressure injuries is key to preventing another tragedy.
