The greater Collierville and Germantown areas are fortunate to have so many unsung healthcare heroes putting themselves on the line during the COVID-19 crisis — working exhausting shifts, taking care of frightened patients and, for some, even staying away from their families to minimize the chance of bringing the virus home.
So we’d like to honor them for their efforts to keep us all safe, with your help.
Who’s the healthcare hero you know?Send your submissions to Graham Sweeney at firstname.lastname@example.org, call 901.388.1500, or mail to P.O. Box 34967, Bartlett, TN 38134-0967.
We also welcome any stories or letters about the difference that a healthcare provider, first responder, or just the kid down the street who bags groceries after school had made in your life during the coronavirus pandemic.
We want to share stories about people helping people.
