They saved his wife's life from the coronavirus: unable to thank them in person, he held up a sign in the emergency room window to show his gratitude
In the world-wide fight against the Coronavirus, many are paying a special thanks to medical personnel everywhere, who are risking their lives at the frontlines of the epidemic. Without their passion and bravery, the rest of us would have given up all hope by now. That's why thanking the doctors, nurses, laboratory scientists (and the other medical professionals) in our lives should be one of our top priorities.

Allison Swendsen is one of these people who deserves a big thank you right now. A nurse who works at Morristown Medical Center in New Jersey, she is sacrificing not only time with her family, but also her life. Despite her exhaustion - due to the long hours she is putting in at work - she spreads cheer and positivity wherever she goes. This is especially true for her patients, who many of them are in critical condition after contracting the Coronavirus. She puts a lot of effort and energy into her work and expects nothing in return. It's the person she is. This doesn't mean she's not grateful to the people who go out of their way to thank her for what she's done for them.
On March 25th, 2020, Allison was paid an unexpected visit by an elderly man who claimed she and her colleagues saved his wife's life from the Coronavirus. From outside the hospital window, the man held up a poster sign, which said, "Thank you all in emergency for saving my wife's life. I love you all." With his permission, Allison took a photo of the man and his sign and shared it on her facebook account, which then made it's way across the world.
We can't even begin to immagine how difficult life must be for medical professionals inside and outside the workplace right now. We can at least show them our appreciation and gratitude. From the bottom of our heart, thank you so much for your bravery and your dedication to saving our loved ones' lives. We may not be able to be physically with you in this moment, but we are fighting alongside you!
