Being hospitalized with Covid and spending more than a month on a ventilator, you learn what grace is. I have great insurance and no need for financial assistance, although many of you have asked how you can help. I have an idea. I learned what grace was through the CNAs and PCTs that were assigned to me. For those that know me, you know I love learning about the people around me and all of these hospital workers have wonderful stories. But I found myself attached mostly to the folks that show up in my room several times a day to help me with basic needs with as much grace and respect as possible. I also learned, that as a profession, they are terribly underpaid. And they do not get reimbursed for their shoes. I asked one CNA to show me his new Nikes and after a week, they are already starting to lose their tread. When you are on your feet as much as they are, doing incredibly physical work without complaining and only trying to make their patients more comfortable, shoes become really important. With this Go Fund Me, I hope to raise enough money to provide vouchers to the CNAs and PCTs at Cheyenne Regional Hospital and Northern Colorado Long Term Acute and Rehabilitation Hospital to purchase good, quality footwear.
