HEALTH CARE
Respiratory therapist commits to helping patients, even as her cystic fibrosis adds risk
When the coronavirus pandemic began, everyone told Breanna Pierce what she should do.

Her doctors suggested and her family urged: Take a break from working as a respiratory therapist. The risks were too high.

Because she has cystic fibrosis, her health already was at risk. With COVID-19, the consequences could be grave.

During the few weeks it took Pierce, 26, to make her decision, she stopped working with patients at their bedside and took on other tasks in her department at Texas Health Dallas.

"I finally just decided I can’t do this anymore," she said. "Whenever you see all the people you’re working with, and they’re insanely busy, we’re short-staffed, and they’re just running 90 to nothing … I really just wanted to do my part."
