When Brook Imbriani, a young, divorced mother of two, moved back into her childhood home in San Bernardino, California, to help her disabled mother take care of her dying father, it was because she wanted to be closer to her family. Her dad was the proverbial handyman and took care of the home's upkeep. So when he passed away two years later, the house fell into disrepair. Brook went to work full time to help pay the bills while her mom watched her grandchildren during the day. Despite Brook's busy life, when she was notified that she was a bone marrow match for ailing ten-month-old Esmerelda Ramirez, she unhesitatingly took action to help save the little girl. She even took a week off of work without pay to recover from the transplant. Esmerelda's parents had been praying and waiting for a match for their baby. Today Esmerelda is a healthy four-year-old and in complete remission. Her mother, Nancy, said, "If it weren't for God and our donor, our child wouldn't be alive today." The Ramirez family nominated Brook as their way of saying "thank you."
