Trauma nurse Cheryl Pebbles was part of the team that worked to earn Level IV accreditation for the trauma center at Pennsylvania's Grove City Medical Center, which saved the life of her husband after he was injured in a motorcycle accident. Pebbles said she knew it was important to work with and support the families of trauma patients, but it was confirmed when she became "the family."
