Our hometown hero is our daughter, Andrea (Rockey) Behrman. Andrea grew up on Diamond Rock Road, went to Villa Maria Academy, U. Pennsylvania for both her BSN and MSN and is a Nurse Practitioner at New York University Langone Hospital in Manhattan. She had her second daughter June 28th and took a 6 month leave, returning in January, just before the surfacing of the Coronavirus 19. She worked on the Pediatric Pulmonary-Cardio-Thoracic Intensive Care Unit. But, toward the end of March they turned it into the Adult Covid19 ICU unit. She was in the midst of the trauma and death until the last picture…she sent it to us saying they had just discharged all the adult patients–Tuesday, April 21, @ 7:53pm. For now she’s back to treating very sick babies, and we pray it remains that way!!!!
Thank you for the opportunity to acknowledge special people in our community! Stay safe, stay strong!
