Harrisville's Superhero

Hassisville, New York | Helping

For most medical professionals in Harrisville NY, taking care of her patients at the hospital and the offices of Saint Lawrence County Health Systems would be enough for a full career. But for Brittani Bickel, a Physician's Assistant, it's not enough. A woman of boundless energy and unique skills., she also takes care of the inmates in the county jail and runs two restaurants that deliver food to rural areas where others won't go.

In one of the darkest moments of my life, when I truly feared I might hurt myself, she held my hand and talked me through the pain -- a gift without value that continues to this day. Thanks to her help and support with exercise and diet I went from 400 pounds to 240. She’s always giving and doing things for others. She never asks for anything, and gives so very much to others. 

Through some of her own heartbreaking losses, she still shines so bright. She lost her favorite dog a couple years ago but this spring she adopted a challenging litter of puppies that she nursed with a devotion. Her sheer stubbornness is the only reason a few of them made it.

This lady is an integral part of our community and one of the most amazing human beings I have ever had the pleasure to meet. Through all the pain of Covid-19 she still gives so much love. We are lucky to have people like Brittani in our community.
