It takes a special kind of person to become a nurse, a profession that requires a propensity for compassion and selflessness that not many people possess. But even still, the lengths this nurse went to so that she could be there for her patients will surely touch your heart.

Talk about dedication. This weekend’s blizzard did not stop Chantelle Diabate from going to work. The 31-year-old nurse braved the snow and freezing temperatures on Saturday and walked nearly two miles to get to her patients at the Hebrew Home, a nursing home in the Bronx.

“At the time I just felt that I knew that nobody was really going to come in so I tried to do my best to get there,” Diabate told ABC News. “At some point you’re going to have to depend on somebody. We all need each other. I treat my patients well because I treat them like family.”

Diabate was the only nurse who reported to work, said David Pomeranz, a director at the nursing home.

“Chantelle wasn’t looking for a lot of attention, she just came to do her job and felt happy she was needed,” he told ABC News. “It makes me feel very proud, it really reminds you of the commitment [our employees] make…there’s a lot to learn from their efforts and loyalty.”

This is exactly the kind of person that we need more of in the world. Her patients must be especially grateful for her commitment to them, even in the face of a blizzard.
