Sarilia Therildor | ER Nurse | Airforce Reserve Captain
Sarilia usually works as an emergency room nurse at Delray Medical Center, but today she is serving a greater calling. With less than 24-hours notice, she was deployed through the Air Force Reserves and is now helping to fight the battle against COVID-19 at Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx, New York, at the hospital’s emergency room.
“Being that person to hold their hand to support them, that’s made a world of difference,” she told media station WPTV (NBC) news when describing how she felt about caring for those in need. Sarilia and so many other healthcare workers who relocated to the area hardest hit by this unprecedented virus are truly America’s heroes.
