Vilma Wong is a nurse with a long memory

Vilma Wong, 54, is a nurse at a children's hospital near San Francisco, California. Last month she met a new resident at the hospital named Brandon Seminatore. He's studying to be a childhood neurologist. When she saw his badge, she remembered his name from almost 30 years ago.

She knew him because he was once a patient of hers. She even remembered that his father was a policeman. Brandon was born two months premature and weighed only 2 pounds 6 ounces. He spent his first 40 days in intensive care, where Wong nursed him. Brandon's parents told him to be on the lookout for her, because she was their favorite nurse. Vilma says getting to work with someone she helped save is the "best reward a nurse could get."
