In supporting role, trauma survivor returns to Harborview

Paul Carter looks forward to his Fridays at Harborview Medical Center. He volunteers there, talking to patients in the trauma unit who need support. His experience as a patient after a 2015 shooting led him to return to the unit, to provide empathy and hope to patients who are suffering physical and emotional pain.
