Letter from one of Dustin’s employers
In 2013, Dustin Kent, RN, was a huge asset to my husband who has since passed away from ALS. At the time, my husband, barely clinging to life, was completely paralyzed and living on a ventilator.
Just one week after Dustin joined the nurse team, I coined him the nickname of “Big Brain” because Dustin always had the most intelligent and compassionate solution for every problem my husband faced each day.
I was so impressed with Dustin as a human being that I kept up a friendship with him after my husband passed away. I had many fund raisers at my home to raise money and awareness for others who suffer from ALS and Dustin was always the first to participate. Every Ice Bucket Challenge, every Walk for ALS, Dustin was a huge supporter and help.
I am absolutely devastated to learn of his false imprisonment in Peru. This is a deeply devoted father who has suffered severely at the hands of his ex-wife who against a US court order took his daughter out of the country and hid her from him. I continue to be amazed at the injustices of life, and this is just another of many. While no one can bring back my husband who suffered so severely and died at a young age from an incurable disease such as ALS, we can certainly as citizens of the greatest country in the world, bring back one of our most solid citizens, Dustin Kent. Please free Dustin from Peruvian prison. This is a travesty that must be reversed.
