As a young girl Clara was encouraged in her education and her works as a healer by her older brother.  When he was grievously injured, it took her faith in herself to pull him through.  Young Clara the healer would grow up to be Clara Barton, the founder of the Red Cross and one of the people who helped shaped medical response and world health organizations as we now know them.
