The Story Behind The 'Mighty Mauve Stack': This one's for the Nurses. After 217 days spent in Hospital, the nursing staff quickly became our family and our rock. It's impossible to count the number of times they saved Blake's life, but even in the toughest of times, they kept us calm and assured us they would do everything they could. They loved and cared for Blake like she was their own, and will forever hold a special place in our hearts for our nurses and their incredible strength. Find your rock and hold them close.
