The Heroic Healer in NYC

New York, New York | Frontline

Krystle Johnson is an Emergency Medicine Doctor, working during the Covid pandemic in NYC. She played a vital role when NYC was the epicenter of the disease. When COVID hit NYC, Krystle selflessly went to NYC to save others and placed herself at risk on the frontlines despite her recent surgery.

Her hospital, that was featured on CNN, was short on personal protective equipment, ventilators, oxygen and we were very concerned for her and her well-being. Her colleagues and their family members were dying and she bravely went to work each day to save patients.

Krystle had to undergo a grueling surgery at the beginning of the year after being diagnosed with suspicious abdominal mass. After the surgery, Krystle came home to North Carolina to recover. Despite the recent surgery and her now being more susceptible, she bravely went to work every day and even took her colleagues shifts when they fell ill. I do not know anyone more deserving of this recommendation. She is selfless, thoughtful and our frontline and real life hero.
