Jean is due to retire in August, but she is still working. She is a post-anesthesia nurse and stepped up to work in ICU to help out with the COVID-19 patients. She goes to work to help and did not take an early out. She does not brag or pat herself on her shoulder, she goes to work. Jean is not only a good nurse, but Jean is also a patient advocate. She is not recognized for what she does, she cares for her patients.

Nathaly is a single mother, raising a sweet baby girl while both working as a babysitter AND going to school for nursing. She always puts others before herself—both her daughter and the people in her community. That's why she's working so hard to become a nurse. She's an amazing mom and friend and absolutely deserves to be recognized.

The person I am nominating lives in my neighborhood. She is an Anesthesiologist who is helping out extremely sick patients with COVID-19 in the ICU. While we are all seating at home to stop the spread of the virus she goes to work everyday. Sometimes we don't see her for days as she is helping patients in her hospital for days and night. Sometimes she is gone for weeks together. She is one of the brave soul who is directly helping the COVID-19 patients without even thinking of danger to her life. As in personal life she is a mother of 1 year old baby. I am sure she is losing precious quality time with her kid when she is dedicating those countless days and weeks to treat the patients in this unprecedented time. No matter how hard the situation is we always saw her with a smile on her face and always ready to help. We salute our unsung neighborhood hero who puts her life in danger to save everyone else's lives. I hope you consider her for the award.

I nominate my dad Shane Gleason he is a firefighter and is on the front lines fighting the corona virus. When he is not working he is always there to help others. Back in January there was a big fire in our town. My dad was off that day. The fire was in a big building that housed low income families. When my dad found out he immediately started to get donations of clothing and other supplies to help the 11 families that were left homeless! He also made dinner for them the next night! When I grow up I want to be like my dad he is my hero.

Chef Q. started with eight families, but word spread fast, demand grew, and she now makes and delivers 120 to 140 meals every night, focusing heavily on healthy: lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, nothing fried. On Sundays, dinners are extra-special. She runs a tight ship. Everything is zero contact. Everyone is masked. Shoppers arrive and place groceries in the designated decontamination area outside. They sanitize every single package before they come into the kitchen. Bags are thrown away, boxes broken down.

We just lost our dad to this awful virus. But my sister is a nurse and she finds the courage everyday to go to work and be a blessing to others who are going through what we just went through. For that I salute you Big Sis.

Tabby is an urgent care physician dividing her time between an urgent care facility in the Bronx as well as an attending physician in a public housing project in the Bronx for the homeless. She is also the mother of a nearly three-year-old boy who is now totally in the daytime care of his father, a fine art and digital artist working at home.

My sister Olga is a registered nurse at a local hospital. She is truly a hero. When the news of covid came, their hospital got hit hard and fast. The amount of patients multiplied each day and she was deployed to work in a makeshift ICU as a critical care nurse without being trained for critical care. She stepped up to the plate, learning on the go, adapting, all while risking her health and life. The amount of death and loss she experienced was very overwhelming. She worked on adrenaline, and cried on her days off when she would finally get the chance to reflect on all the horrific scenes she saw. She told me about the freezer trucks parked outside the hospital where they stored dead bodies. She is truly a strong person, dedicated to her profession and not someone who gives up easily. She worked many overtime shifts just to fill the gaps of the sick co-workers out with covid, often working 16 hour shifts. She adapted to care for ventilator critical patients on multiple complex IV drip medications that helped to keep these patients alive for as long as possible. I'm truly proud to call her my sister and believe she is deserving of gifts such as this.
