I’m Here Movement
The I’M HERE MOVEMENT is a 501-(C)3 not for profit which is changing the culture of care through the use of two little words. It is a global effort to help health care professionals embrace the power they have to comfort patients by simply being present.
Patients are vulnerable, scared, worried and sicker than ever. Sometimes, the only thing (and the best thing) a health care pro can do is simply reassure the patient with the words “I’m here,” telling the patient that he or she is not alone.
Marcus recently spoke to our group of over 300 healthcare leaders, and I can honestly say that he was the perfect choice for our meeting. Marcus was able to create a deep connection with all of the attendees through his expert storytelling, use of humor in just the right places, and sharing his deeply personal experiences in a way that moved everyone. Everyone walked away informed, motivated and empowered be part of the I’m Here Movement.
A moment 20 years in the making!
Jennifer comforted Marcus with the words “I’m here” immediately following his trauma.
Watch Jennifer and Marcus reunite two decades after that horrible evening and learn what a profound impact they each had on one another.
Listen in as she learns her patient not only survived, but brought along a message for her – and the world.
“I’m Here” has opened the heart and mind of nurses and health professionals around the world.
Marcus’ tender message of ‘human touch’ altered his dramatic and traumatic journey. This book continues to awaken us to the profound significance of simple compassionate basic acts of human presence and loving kindness as a foundation for healing – what we often miss or dismiss in our busy life practices.
This work is a wonderful teacher and lesson of the importance of caring moments, the human voice, and touch as turning points – alleviating suffering.
