Christell Cadet is an amazing young woman, sister, daughter, co-worker and friend who has been selfless in her career as an FDNY Paramedic.
Recently, she has become ill, and has been hospitalized in ICU/ Isolation from Covid-19.
She is on Oxygen 24/7.
She is in for a long battle: to recovery and life during her after care.
There is no word yet on when she will be discharged out of the hospital.
Let me tell you more about her:
Christell joined the FDNY as an EMT in January of 2012, nearly 2 years later she became a Paramedic and is currently stationed at Sta 47.
Christell is charasmatic, resilient, funny, and incredibly kind.
She understands the need for EMS during these difficult and trying times. She knows what being on the front lines of the fight against Covid-19 entails. She has always loved being the 1st line of defense and care in emergency medicine.
She wants all First Responders to know: "Take care of yourselves first. Make sure you go home whole at the end of the day."
She wants the world to know: "Everyone is fighting the virus differently. Many thousands are recovering from it but its still a serious issue to be taken with precaution around others."
Christell joined EMS out of love. Love for her community and strangers alike; making a difference in patients lives and helping all those she has come into contact with while working as an EMT and now as a Paramedic.
Please, let's band together, as a community, near and far, young and old,EMS and civilians and help Christell during her battle against Covid-19 and her continued battle when she is released, as her fight won't stop there.
