For Anthony, the safest route to the other side of this pandemic is not through the adaptability of a few individuals, but through ongoing unity and collective support for our healthcare workers.

“Healthcare professionals are selflessly putting themselves in harm’s way every day. With an ongoing shortage of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment), the risks they take are only increasing. While this pandemic has been a heartbreaking experience for many, it has brought to light a sense of unity among seemingly diverse people.

But it has also brought an overwhelming demand to adapt to ever-changing obstacles. One Wisconsin doctor responded to this need with true ingenuity. He crafted a custom protective face mask out of parts of a picture frame and hard hat when his provided equipment failed him.

While his ingenuity is remarkable, it should never have been necessary for survival. We need to come together to support our heroes on the front lines of this fight against coronavirus.”
