Seventeen years ago, Micheline was a nurse during the SARS epidemic. She did a series of paintings about the experience:

This painting is in honor of the risk Nurses take everyday. The SARS epidemic was a reminder of the selflessness of Nurses. Beyond the physical hazards, it is the giving of self that makes a Nurse who she is. I am proud to say, “Nurse, I am.”
