I am a Nurse in the frontlines working to fight against COVID19 and I have 22q11.2 DS. I’ve been a nurse for 11 years and in the health care field for 15 years. I have never seen anything like this. I took an oath to save lives and that means to take a vaccination. I will and I have! I am due for my second dose of the Pfizer vaccine on the 18th and can’t wait to receive it. This is one step closer to help families come together again.
My Daughter McKenna was born with a congenital heart defect which she will go through life needing heart surgeries. She has a narrowed airway and requires daily oxygen usage and breathing treatments to stay alive. She was diagnosed with DiGeorge Syndrome days after birth. Then at 31 years old I was diagnosed with 22q.11.2DS. My Husband and I have two Girls Madison is our oldest she is 7 years old she does not have 22q. McKenna is 3 years old everyday we fight to keep our family safe and your family safe.
