“Intense, insane, nonjudgmental love is really – it wasn’t the seven dollars – it was the love. And that’s what’s gonna heal the planet. It’s what’s gonna heal all of us from the inside out is deeply, madly loving each other, and this story is a perfect example of why that’s the best medicine of all time.” – Paramedic Crew Chief Jeanah
“Do you remember me?” Jeanah was standing outside one of her normal posts at a Chevron, when she heard noises coming from the dumpster nearby. With the area’s dense transient population, she was concerned but unsurprised when she discovered a man, Will, rummaging through the garbage for recyclables. What she didn’t anticipate was what else she found – a pair of striking blue eyes radiating kindness, insight into life on the streets, and a steadfast bond.
Join former firefighter/paramedic and host Phil Klein as he shares the mic with Jeanah, a Paramedic Crew Chief who hails from California’s Central Valley and has spent 21 years working in EMS. Jeanah recounts how her friendship with Will steered them both through some difficult times, what she feared when Will seemingly vanished, and how a gift of seven dollars yielded a return bigger than she could’ve ever imagined.
