A Delaware County EMT who has a weakened immune system puts it all on the line every day while saving lives during this pandemic. The risk EMT Kimberly Ewing takes is greater than most. "If every person that has medical issues in their life decides to quit, then there's going to be not many people left to help the people that need it," said Ewing, who works for the Lansdowne Fire Company. She's immunocompromised and doing everything she can to protect herself, but she's not the only one who worries. Her 16-year-old daughter Sarah holds her breath every time her mom leaves for a shift. "It's been scary and hard because she has to stay safe on the ambulance with the COVID-19 patients she sees on the ambulance daily," said Sarah, who wants to follow in her mom's footsteps and be a nurse someday. She says that's why she studies so hard at school.
