ABC News: Saint Luke's nurse Abi Brittain receives 2020 Thrivership Award

Abi Brittain and her two toddler sons survived an unimaginable car accident that left her fighting for her life, on a ventilator for months, and left one of her sons with a permanent brain injury.

Abi was so inspired by the nurses at Saint Luke's Hospital of Kansas City who helped save her and her family that she enrolled in nursing school. More than two decades later, she’s a Saint Luke's nurse herself, and she’s working to save others on the frontlines in the pandemic.

Watch ABC's Robin Roberts present Abi with a 2020 Thrivership Award.
