When the COVID-19 pandemic struck the world, it was difficult for everyone - but even more challenging for the frontline medical workers. They faced issues that they couldn’t prepare for and they worked tirelessly to save lives every day. No one experienced the daily struggles of the pandemic more than our brave frontline medical workers. These warriors have been the lifeline of our society during these difficult times.
Their message is simple: Get vaccinated, so you can save your life and your loved ones. Have no regrets.
PTSD from continuously strained environments like the ones our frontline healthcare workers are faced with are not uncommon. The COVID-19 pandemic doesn’t end when these nurses go home. Just like them, most of us know of at least one close loved one that’s been affected by the virus. From the loss of their very own nursing sisters and brothers to their blood sisters and brothers, we honour those that have fallen.
Listen to the stories of how the virus has affected these frontline workers’ family members.
