The face of Vanessa – an RN at Ocean Medical Center in NJ – is a wonderful reminder of the kind and selfless nurses who are making sacrifices every day in the fight against the coronavirus. In Vanessa’s own words:

[T]his is ALSO the face full of unsettling feelings regarding the CDC’s handling of PPE requirements during this COVID-19 pandemic and the shortages being experienced nationwide. This my friends has me more scared than any virus itself. As frontline healthcare workers we are SOLDIERS of HEALTH and our ARMOR is our PPE. Our health and safety should be a priority in order for us to keep our families safe and continue to care for those in our beloved communities!
