In this pandemic, many heroes have put their lives on the line to help so many others in their time of need.

This is the story of one of those heroes:

(Story continues from "Read More")

After 44 years as a registered nurse, Marty had retired to a peaceful routine in her home.

But then came a call from Donna Budde of St. John's Hospital in Maplewood, Minnesota, a hospital consumed by coronavirus patients, and Marty's former employer.

She pleaded with Marty to return ASAP, and Marty wanted to help.

"I'd feel guilty if I didn't do something," Marty told The Washington Post. "I can't just sit at home on my hands."

So, Marty quit retirement and went to work protecting the health of the medical workers at the hospital.

Marty had retired in July, only to return to work in September, and then retired again near the end of the year.

This time, her children Lydia and Nicholas worried about her returning because of the coronavirus and her age and underlying medical conditions.

But Marty felt safer in the hospital, with its protective protocols than she did among the public.

Now, Marty arrives at the hospital at about 7 am and works into the evenings.

She intends to stay until the grip of the virus is broken, perhaps in 2021, when she will have been a nurse for 46-years, and then she will retire.

Maybe. For when the medical needs are great, Martha has the courage and determination to help others, as she is truly a hero.
