The power of social media has helped an Albany woman find the nurse who cared for her almost 40 years ago. Amanda Scarpinati, of Athens New York, suffered third degree burns when she was just 3 months old after rolling into a steam humidifier. 20 years ago she tried to find the nurse who looked after her, but with no luck. Her luck changed after turning her search to Facebook.
