A healthcare worker from ECMC is getting a box seat ticket to the Bills home playoff game, after being nominated by the community in a contest with Batavia Downs.

The Wilde family told NEWS 4 (WIVB-TV) that nurse Kaitlin Floyd’s passion for the Bills and taking care of her patients including Greg Wilde helped her win this contest.

Greg Wilde was taken to ECMC and was battling cancer. Floyd was one of his nurses.

“Even when she wasn’t assigned to my husband she still checked in on me and my husband. And it was all of us, the whole family,” Greg’s wife Leeann Wilde said. “She’s just a great person. She helped the healing process and the hurting process, she helped it all.”

Although Greg Wilde passed away, the family’s bond with nurse Floyd lived on.

When the family saw a contest where people could nominate a healthcare worker to win a Bills playoff ticket, they immediately thought of Floyd.

“I’m just so thankful. They made it very easy to take care of Greg,” Floyd said. “He was a wonderful patient. I wish the outcomes were better.”

The six WNY winners were announced on Monday, and Floyd was one of them.

“I was ecstatic to win, I still am,” Floyd said. “I can’t wait to go to the playoffs. I wish I could bring all the nurses from ECMC, they’re all doing a great job. I’m very excited to go and see them win.”
