COVID-19 PPE , Mission Field , Front Line Goal 100

My name is Frank, a CVICU ICU now COVID-19 ICU RN, in DFW, Texas. The present viral climate we live in is all too real for us all. It has impacted all aspects of what we felt was a sound way of life. As the beginning of my introduction states, I am a Front Line Healthcare worker caring directly for the highest level of critically ill COVID-19 patients. The picture you see is of my own personal Respirator with 100 rated filtration filters as well as my own face shield. I am one of the fortunate ones, actually the only one at my facility, to have this equipment. This level of PPE is needed and well documented in every part of the world and what our GOV is using when coming in contact with COVID-19 settings. My background and hobbies had these items laying around for automotive and home improvement needs. The 1x N95 use for entire 12-14 hour shift in this high viral environment is not safe practice and losing one of my fellow ICU Team members: RN/Physician/RT to sickness or worse means not only the loss of a front line healthcare worker but the lives of patients they could have cared for during this pandemic. My Mission Field is to provide the same, APPROPRIATE, 100 grade filtration level of respiratory and visual protection to my COVID-19 ICU Team and I pray if this provides the means, to other COVID ICU, ED, & Paramedics Front Line Healthcare Members across DFW. I have acquired all the proper information and what is needed to set up each of these Front Line workers with the PPE that will not only ease anxiety, stress, fear, but Above All: Allow us to care for these patients with our undivided attention Safely. I humbly-sincerely ask you all to please contribute what you can to this worthy cause. I assure you every dollar given will be spent on reusable PPE equipment to help my fellow Critical Care Healthcare Workers in fighting this battle until it is won. If you cannot contribute as this time, I ask for your prayers. I pray you all are safe, healthy, and life returns to what we knew it to be sooner than later. Thank you for your time and consideration.
