Background: Faye may not appear your average nurse, for a start the wages don't quite cover the financial needs. But Faye is very caring and not afraid to get her hands dirty. She takes her job seriously, caring emotionally for all her patients. Her disabled son Archie died after a mistake was made at the hospital. The love of her life, Linden, died in front of her while she was pregnant with Joseph's baby. It rocked Faye to the core, forcing her to question if she could ever be the same again.
