Frontline Hero Project- Covid19 Pandemic 2020- The Grundy Family
Through all this I’ve felt so helpless! As my many friends gear up every single day to battle the frontlines of this pandemic, I sit at home trying to find things to occupy my time. With no booked sessions Ive searched for ways to satisfy my need for being creative. I knew I needed to do something… something that lights my soul on fire. But what?
After weeks of not shooting I woke up on April 2nd 2020 and it HIT ME! My feelings of wanting to help and show appreciation combined with needing an artistic outlet made for the perfect recipe to start the The Frontline Hero Project.
Heroes don’t wear capes… they wear scrubs, uniforms, badges, tools on their belts, and yes even Costco name tags!
I am thankful for all of you out there risking everything. You all are true heroes and I appreciate you!
Thank you now… thank you forever. You guys make the difference!
The Grundy Family
Fire Captain and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) Nurse
Jerren is a fire captain with SBCOFD and has worked there for over 16 years. Being a first responder is a high-stress, yet rewarding job. You never know what each 911 call will bring. I’ve been a NICU nurse for over nine years and absolutely love what I do. As a nurse for such a vulnerable population, I am fearful of what this virus is capable of. There is so much unknown. While I’m not necessarily caring for patients with Covid-19 (yet), I am responsible for protecting the most vulnerable patients from Covid-19. We both worry every time one of us goes to work that we could bring this home to our son and other family members whom we rely on for child care while we are both working. We are doing the best we can to keep our family safe and healthy. It’s so important to maintain a positive attitude as this situation evolves!! One of the best things to see from this pandemic is how much everyone has come together both in our workplaces and in the community.
