CoxHealth nurse shares heartfelt letter to community
This week we shared a letter from a kind and courageous CoxHealth nurse serving in our COVID-19 ICU. Amelia is one of our many heroes and her words are powerful, including this excerpt, “We hold your hand as we tell you to fight this, and that you have so many people who care about you. We watch as you nod and squeeze our hand and tears stream from the corners of your eyes. We listen as your family tells you over the phone that they love you and can’t wait for you to get better and come home. We watch as this virus kills you despite every fight against death.”
