Relief COVID-19

As the country and the Department of Health mobilize every available resource to fight one of the greatest public health threats of our lifetimes, we are asking for your help. 

COVID-19 has already stretched and strained state resources and our existing healthcare system.  Healthcare workers in every corner of the state have been making sacrifices to provide the best care for the rapidly increasing numbers of people who will need it.  Healthcare workers rely on personal protective equipment to protect themselves and their patients from being infected and infecting others.  But shortages are leaving doctors, nurses and other frontline workers dangerously ill-equipped to care for COVID-19 patients, due to limited access to supplies such as gloves, medical masks, respirators, goggles, face shields, gowns, and aprons.

But even with the unwavering commitment of our dedicated healthcare professionals, we know they cannot stand a chance to care for our loved ones without the proper equipment.  Please join us on this fight and to protect the medical teams on the frontlines.

OUR COMMITMENT

100% of donations will go directly into the acquisition and delivery of medical masks, N95 masks, surgical gowns, protective coverall suits, and Personal Protective Equipment for frontline healthcare workers in NYC hospitals and medical clinics.  We have relationships with hospitals, medical clinics, and New York State, and will send the medical supplies directly to where the need is requested.  Dr. June works personally with the hospitals and directly with front line health care workers to ensure that their medical supply needs are met swiftly.  We are currently focusing on New York State due to the overwhelming numbers of COVID-19 cases.  We will mobilize and shift our attention to other states when the need is there. 

WHAT WE ARE DOING

It's important to us to look at the complete picture of need.  Some medical units and frontline health care workers will need surgical face masks this week, but they also need surgical gowns, face shields, and protective coverall suits.  Their need for gowns might shift next week and they're looking for more N95 respirator masks.  What we're doing is actively responding to their needs, looking at the complete picture, and sending medical supplies and PPE to address the shortage that they're facing.

Dr. Junella Chin is a world-leading integrative medical cannabis physician with over 15 years of medical experience.  Featured in Forbes, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Good Morning America, and more, Dr. June treats the most complicated cases from intractable seizures to Parkinson's.  With COVID-19 hitting New York State, Dr. June shifted her focus on getting her medical communities and peers the medical supplies that they need.   

Wendy Nguyen graduated from UC Berkeley with a major in Psychology.  During her time in the Bay Area, she was a counselor at the Berkeley Free Clinic providing mental health services to the homeless community, and an elementary science teacher developing interactive science programs for underserved schools.  She is currently a content creator.  When COVID-19 hit New York, Wendy focused her efforts on providing information and resources for small businesses and partnered with Dr. June in hopes to provide medical relief to those on the frontlines. 

OUR GRATITUDE

As a community, we can not stand by as doctors, nurses, and medical teams risk their lives.  Shortage of personal protective equipment are endangering health workers worldwide.  Every dollar is meaningful and every donation is significant.  Thank you for being part of this medical relief effort.
