SMML Nurse Holly Phail and Man She Saved Reunite at Detroit Red Wings Game

LIVONIA – The story of Holly Phail, a St. Mary Mercy Livonia RN, and Edwin Ellul, the man whose life she helped save at a local Meijer, has continued.

The Detroit Red Wings treated Holly, Edwin, and their families to a “Dream Experience” on May 2. Both families were invited to attend a game, and Holly and Edwin received custom Red Wings jerseys with their names across the back.

Holly also participated in a pre-game interview. She shared how much she had enjoyed the experience, stating, “It was a great time for both of us!”

Holly was not the only SMML colleague at the game. Lori Key, an SMML RN whose rendition of “Amazing Grace” went viral last year, sang the national anthem before the game began. She was asked to sing as part of Frontline Heroes Day, when the Red Wings celebrated frontline and essential workers from across Metro Detroit.

SMML is proud of both Holly and Lori, and is grateful to the Detroit Red Wings for providing an evening to remember.
