"I found myself feeling powerless and defeated," Shelby had written last week ... "It was in that moment that I knew I needed to summon my inner warrior. So I threw on my Steph jersey under my scrubs and started brainstorming how I could be part of the solution."
Steph clearly appreciated it -- and felt compelled to thank her personally.
Oh, and when he called ... she was still rockin' Curry gear -- all the way down to the shoes.
“I see you still have my jersey on,” Curry said.
Delany smiled -- and then thanked Steph.
"I wanted to thank you for how much you inspired me ... especially when I first started my job here, it’s a really steep learning curve, you have two people that you’re trying to make sure they don’t die on shift, and a lot of tough stuff going on with family. There were times I wanted to quit, give up.”
"That’s when I started wearing the jersey. That was like, just my way of kind of gathering my strength, reminding myself I’ve got this."
After the call, Delany went to work at the hospital.
