Sarah said goodbye to her husband as she left for work on that fateful day, not knowing it would be nearly three months before she saw him again. As you know, COVID-19 has ravaged countless countries, states, cities, and towns and it has forever changed the lives of millions of people around the world.
This includes the lives of people like Sarah, an ICU nurse whose husband suffered a massive stroke during the COVID-19 pandemic in New York. Sarah knew her critical care skills were desperately needed so she continued to work two jobs, fighting for the lives of her patients – while her husband fought for his life in the ICU of a hospital she couldn’t visit.
Sarah is a COVID-19 frontline hero who, like so many of her colleagues, has been required to make sacrifices far beyond the call of duty. Yet she has made them with grace and dignity, as have so many of our COVID-19 frontline heroes.
