How do we Give Recognition?
My mom is a Personal Support Worker and has been since 2004. She works very hard for us. Her work ethic and caring nature is an inspiration to me. This pandemic has made her job more stressful but my mom never backs down from a challenge
A Covid-Care Champion Indeed!
I would like to nominate my sister Anita Robinson as a Covid Care Champion. She work as a PSW in the community. My sister is the most caring and loving person and she cares for her clients just the way she cares for her family. She absolutely loved her job and she loves working in the community because she gets to meet new people and she is surrounded by lots of different cultures. the pandemic did not stop her from going out there to help them even though she did not get an award she still do her job and does it with a smile.
The front-line worker I would like to nominate as the Covid Care Champion is my mother Sheree Montague. My mom works in the homeless shelter system. Regardless of what is going on this city (and across the world) right now, my mom continues to glow with even more compassion and empathy. She tries her best to help her clients feel like they have a family during these lonely times and helps to give them a roof over their head to feel safe. She creates safe ways in her workplace to brighten up her clients spirits along with those that work alongside her with events like summer barbeques and pizza parties.
Along with taking care of her work family, my mom is also doing a great job raising my brother and I and helping to keep us happy during these time that are exceptionally hard for mothers and most importantly she is keeping us safe.
I would like to nominate my wife Wendy Johnson who is a hardworking nurse working on the frontline of this pandemic. For the past 9 months she has worked tirelessly on the covid unit at her hospital risking her own health and safety to care for others.
My friend Sonia has been a personal support worker for over 40 years..

I am thankful for your spirit, love, compassion and existence. Your my Covid Champion!!! ????
This is my covid-care champion! Corey is a janitorial/housekeeping worker, and he goes above and beyond what is asked of him and is kind and considerate to all staff and especially patients!
His cheerful laugh and humorous banter lights up any room and has been recognized by patients when they’re feeling down. I hope this little gift can showcase workers like Corey who easily are overlooked.
This very young lady is my daughter dedicated to helping others since she was 9 years old and has sick child of her own and loved by all she is truly a strong hero

Lisa’s determination to keep us informed and safe is unmatched. Thanks Lisa, you are a true hero.
Listening to G98.7 since you started & at home & work ( Toronto General) it remains a favorite station. Keep up the excellent work & all the best to you all.
My mom has been working in the nursing homes from covid began. She’s been pushing so hard and really deserves this!
Steente and I started working at the Milton hospital on the same day about 2 years ago. She’s the nicest person I’ve ever met. She deserves all the world.
Apart from the fact that Alison is my daughter she is the most caring nurse to her elderly residents that she cares for . she is also the one that’s doing all of the Covid testing at her workplace and has been throughout this pandemic . as well she is seven months pregnant with my grandson who is due in February and I pray every day for her safety.
I would like to nominate my mother as a COVID Care Champion. My mother worked multiple night shift during the outbreak at her job caring for COVID patients with a shortage of staff. She was still able to care for her family and keep us safe. My mother has been a champion caregiver before the pandemic and will continue to be one.
Roselyn works at the Scarborough Grace Hospital in the Dietary department. She is great person, a wonderful friend and a hard worker. Although there is the threat of Covid 19, Roselyn is never absent from work and is always on time. I truly admire Roselyn because she is very dedicated to taking care of her family and those that are in need of care.

As a mother of 4 kids, Curlene is the most hard working person I know at home and especially at work, it does not matter if it’s a call from her boss at 6am to come in for 7am she’s on the move, she’s a very dedicated worker, very loving and care for her clients.
Hi G team,
I would like to nominate Margaret Nunes as a Covid Care Champion. My mother Maggie is a very dedicated Personal support worker who works for a Toronto city run long term care facility in the west-end area of the city. She is a hard working women who goes over and beyond her duties to make a better environment for the residents she cares for. Maggie is 65 and should have retired but decided to stay on and work to keep doing what she does best “care for people”. When I call her
and cant get her on the phone, first thing that comes to my mind is “she must have taken a double shift again as they are short every week. Nine out of 10 times, that’s what she has done. For these reasons I believe she is a Covid-Care Champion.
My wife is a Nurse of 19 years and has worked through SARS and now working through a pandemic on the frontlines and has not lost her positivity or smile!
Shout out to the most dedicated and caring RPN I know! ❤
Shout out to a dedicated and caring PSW!!

Hello G-98.7 team,
Thank you for the opportunity to shine a light and give recognition to my covid-care champion and hero – my husband Errol Hayden, a Cable Repair Technician with Bell Canada. As the modest and humble person that he is…he will be the first to admit, he is just doing his job. Given the pandemic, telecommunications is deemed essential and with the increase in the work-from-home and distant learning models, it’s imperative that there is minimal interruption in the internet service to residential and business places – or that the service required for other essential services such as a supermarket or bank to fulfill a transaction is uninterrupted. Part of his job is to ensure that the cable lines are working, and the flow of service is constant. There have been times when he works 16+ hours, 10-day work shifts and on-call – he does it without complaint and is aware of the importance of the service Bell provides, especially now, and he will go to every length to restore a customer’s service. He loves his job and continues to put in over 100% in every task that he does. For that, I am delighted to nominate him as our hero and covid-champion. Again, thank you very much for this opportunity. Guidance and blessings!
My want to thank my Auntie Kerry for all she does to help those that are unable to help themselves. Her strength and determination is admirable. Even after she suffered the loss of her grandmother she still pushed on and thought of those that she helps, before she thought of herself. She is truly a CHAMPION in my heart.
Sharon T is my COVID- 19 CARE CHAMPION. An ER nurse for many years she is compassionate, caring, and empathetic. She is a blessing to the profession. She is an angel. Thank you G98.7 for giving us the opportunity to recognize so many on the front line of this pandemic. So much appreciated.
My mother is a frontline worker she works throughout the pandemic and still working in this covid crisis.
The most hardworking nurse I have ever met and had the pleasure to be working next to during these hard times. Thank you for all that you do ❤️
My sister works in an er at one of the cities most busiest hospitals. Working overtime, putting in long hours just to help the sick during this difficult time. We are all so proud of her and thankful for all that she does.
I nominate Claudette Brown a Dietary Aid worker who has been feeding the Patients and Staff of Mississauga Long Term Care Center for over 40 years. She’s my champion because her family wanted her to stay home when Covid-19 spike but she refuse to leave her co-workers to face this pandemic without her by their side. So she’s still working today, thankfully the Long term care home she work at to today date has no case of covid.
I would like to nominate Rod Smith as my Covid-Care Champion. Rod is a technician for a local phone company. He mainly works outside in rain or shine, hot weather or minus degree weather and yes…even snow. If he’s not working on a telephone poll, he is connecting wires at a phone box or digging in dirt, looking for buried wires. He is a champion because during these tough times we all relied on our phones, television and most of all internet (ZOOM calls) to keep us going.
Rod is a dedicated, experienced, hard worker who has received recognition from his customers and peers for excellent customer service, quality work, a strong work ethic, genuine and pleasure to be around.
Please join me in recognizing Rod Smith and nominating him for this award. Thank you. #covidcarechampion and tag @g987fm
My darling Rose is a hard working Personal Support Worker out in the community saving lives daily while putting herself at risk! she is hard working and goes out 7 days a week to ensure that her clients are cared for in the best possible way! This is the true definition of a front line worker. God Bless You for your daily act of selflessness.
I would like to nominate my amazingly courageous Aunt, Raquel Russell, as a COVID-19 care champion. My Aunt is a nurse at a rehab centre in Toronto, and has dedicated countless hours throughout the COVID-19 pandemic serving a variety of different clients. Her bubbly energetic personality has always brought a smile to the faces of everyone she helps because she is such a phenomenal woman. She always participates in a variety of events that contribute to uplifting many communities, and she even took part in many WHMIS videos because of her stunning personality and dedication to her work. I love and admire my Aunt, and she deserves to be the COVID care champion.

Thank You for being there
I want to nominate my dear friend Keisha. She has been working as an ICU nurse during this pandemic and I want her to know how amazing she is. And i thank her for her dedication during this challenging time.
I know so many amazing frontline workers but if I had to nominate just one, then it would be my amazing friend Diane. Every single day she goes to work as a nurse, some days she doesn’t even get to see her daughter before she heads off to school or goes to bed for the night. Aside from her usual duties as a nurse, she is now doing more as a result of covid-19 pandemic. Her days involve swabbing both staff and patients. I want to recognize her for her continued sacrifices, hard work and dedication as a front line worker.
My mom is a champion because she works as a Quarantine Officer for the Public Health Agency of Canada. Almost every day she goes to Pearson Airport to help others and prevent people from getting sick. Her job is to protect Canadians, she stops communicable disease from spreading in Canada. She keeps Covid 19 from harming our strong community. Even though it may be hard some times, she keeps going because she loves her work. She is a kind, powerful and an amazing person. I believe she deserves the award for her perseverance and work that she does for everyone.
Stay safe and stay strong CANADA!
Proud to nominate my sister who’s been actively working day and night in the fight for Covid. She’s a lab technician at the Sick Kids Hospital where together with amazing people are testing thousands of Covid samples from all over . Keep up and stay safe ????
Proud of my sister (first on the left)in the fight for Covid at Sickkids. Great work to all of them heroes ????

Dedicated and conscientious with just the right mixture of compassion
this is an honest description of Joy’s commitment to caring for those who are unable to adequately care for themselves.
Despite your pain, despite how tired you are, your kindness has always been your strength. You allow the one’s around you to feel safe and to be themselves. Your compassion and empathy gets individuals through their bad days and the most scary moments. I am honored to know you, to love you and to show you off to the world.
My mom getting ready to take care of her patient
My mother is a Registered Nurse at Etobicoke General Hospital and has worked there throughout the whole pandemic. I have watched her daily worrying about the patients she cares for, while at the same time trying to keep herself safe. In my eyes she is the bravest and hardest working nurse I know.
I nominate Michelle as one of the most dedicated registered nurses I know. She works all the time and is great at her job. She loves what she does and right now dedicated all her time to helping patients durning this crisis.
This young woman is my Mother in law and is also a brave senior who believe it or not works as a senior health care worker taking care of fellow seniors! She is brave, beautiful and an overall good time! I hope you win Miss Patricia.
Valerie is extremely hard working. She has been a PSW for over thirty years and this year has so far been the hardest. Each day she goes into work and tries to make the day of her residents better. She loves her residents and considers many of them family, going above and beyond without the need for recognition but truly because she cares. Having a mother over the age of 100, she understands the needs, the patience and the love that each and every resident needs and delivers this in every action and interaction. For many, these are their last days and they cannot be around their family, but she tries to make sure that they have the best time while they’re still here. She truly puts the Personal in personal support worker.
Hi team, I would like to nominate Andrea Yearwood as a Covid Care Champion. Andrea has one of the most important jobs in health care, she cares for the future, specifically the children of our future. She works in the NICU and provides each and every child with the best care possible. Many of these children are brought in to this world too early or with serious medical problems and she assists these children in having their best chances of fighting and living a long life. She also assists many of the scared, confused and frazzled parents; she empathizes with the parents and gives them all of the best information to ensure an easy transition from hospital to home. She shows each and every child the love and care that she would give her own children, this is why I believe she is a Covid-Care Champion.
Nurses are “in the trenches” and “on the front lines of care.” They “go into battle” and if they’re lucky, they “emerge unscathed” ….I’m so proud, and blessed to call this beautiful human being, a true hero in scrubs, my sister. As an RN, the preparation for battle every day never discourages her. She faces it with bravery, and knowledge head on. She chooses selflessness over self-preservation, despite the mental and physical exhaustion – she does this not in the war against the invisible enemy that is COVID-19, but EVERY time she steps into scrubs/PPE – that is just the person she is.
Day after day/night after night, caring for those who maybe afflicted with the virus, treating everyone as if they’re a family member…even though caring for them may put her own health at risk. She always goes above and beyond, without any hesitation, with strength and grace – all with a smile on her face.
Thanks be to God, as the world is a better place because of her. Thank you to her and for ALL the frontline workers – we salute you and are all truly appreciated. Bless
My covid-care hero!!!!

My favorite front-line worker is my Mother, Joyce. She has worked over 10 years as a Personal Support Worker. This year has been especially tiring, however she never fails to show up and show effort while at work. She is extremely hardworking, caring and is loved by all her clients. I’d love to make this Holiday a bit more special for her! Thank you.

I would like to nominate my mom Lolleta Cunningham as ‘Covid-Care Champion’. My mom works at the local food bank, and is a very caring and selfless individual. Due to COVID-19 the food bank is able to provide any and everyone with the basic necessities to help during this difficult time. My mom has gone out of her way to help those get food weather it be taking from her own cupboards at home or picking up groceries and delivering them to those in need.
Covid-Care Champion 1
Hello G98.7 FM. I want to nominate my friend, Connie Keeler. She works at a local grocery store. When COVID hit, she started to work more shifts, to allow her co-workers with families and people at risk to stay home. She didn’t tell her co-workers, but the store manager told me she volunteered to take on extra shifts. For that reason alone, I believe Connie deserves this recognition. #covidcarechampion and tag @g987fm!
Covid-Care Champion 2
I’d like to recognise my friend Deb whom has shown strength and resilience throughout this pandemic. No matter what, she always has a smile on her face. She is a true warrior and we appreciate you for all that you do! I would like to 100% nominate her for the Covid-Champion nomination. #covidcarechampion and tag @g987fm!
Covid-Care Champion 3
Please consider my colleague Dr. Vanessa Curtis as a COVID Care Champion. Dr. Curtis works in the emergency room of a hospital, and she is often the first person to greet the patients as they enter the emergency room. She has an air of calm and tranquility and I’ve seen firsthand how her persona puts patients at ease.
Dr. Curtis has a motto – COVID Can Hurt Us, But It Can’t Defeat Us. She wrote this on the board in the doctor’s break room and presented all the nurses and support staff with personalized cards. Many of the support staff told me they were touched, as many doctors ignore them.
Dr. Curtis works harder than all the other personnel in the emergency room. She takes on extra shifts and sometimes sleeps at the hospital instead of going home. I know she misses her family, because she chats with them when she takes a break, but they know how much her job means to her.
Dr. Curtis deserves this award. Thank you. #covidcarechampion and tag @g987fm!
Covid-Care Champion 4
Hi G98.7 FM. I want to nominate Robert Briscoe as a COVID Care Champion. Robert delivers meals and prescriptions to senior citizens, including my mother.
My Mom told me that Robert puts a smile on her face whenever he visits. He’s funny, smart and very sweet. He usually visits on Tuesday at 11 a.m., but if he can’t make it, he’ll call her and let her know. Mom told me that none of the other delivery people are this courteous.
Mom told me about a time Robert visited when her fridge was making a funny noise. He arranged for his friend, a refrigerator repairman, to fix the fridge at a very reasonable rate. Mom has passed on the repairman’s name to everyone.
Robert has volunteered to help my Mom with little jobs around the house, and for free. He knows my Mom is on a limited budget and he says he doesn’t want any money. He just wants to help.
My Mom and I want Robert to be recognized for his unselfish care and assistance. Thank you. #covidcarechampion and tag @g987fm!
Covid-Care Champion 5
G98.7 FM, my friend and fellow nurse Karen Green deserves this recognition. She is an ICU nurse at a very busy hospital. Before COVID-19 changed our lives, Karen would work nights because she preferred them to the day shift. She also wanted her co-workers with children to have time with her children. She’d often switch shifts with me.
When COVID-19 reached Ontario, our ICU unit was hit hard. We started to work extended shifts, and some of our co-workers became sick due to exhaustion or exposure to COVID-19. Karen kept all of us upbeat and positive. She told us we can win the war against the virus if we work together. She encouraged us to find “COVID Buddies” to help us deal with our stresses. Our Buddies are our listening posts, our shoulders to cry on, and our confidantes. Karen was not a leader in our unit, but she became our leader. She is worthy of this recognition. #covidcarechampion and tag @g987fm!
Covid-Care Champion 6
Hi G98.7 FM. Kevin Boseman and I work at a local factory making shutter doors for the side of emergency vehicles such as ambulances and firetrucks. Our factory was considered an essential service due to a backlog.
Kevin is very experienced with power tools, as he run his own autobody shop before he started working at the factory. He is very skilled, but he is willing to share those skills. I had never worked in a factory before, and I had no idea what I was doing. Kevin took the time to give me advice. He is very humble and encourages me to always keep learning.
Kevin never gets the credit he deserves for the mentoring and support he shows all of his co-workers. Please consider Kevin for this special recognition. #covidcarechampion and tag @g987fm!
Covid-Care Champion 7
Hello G98.7 FM. My co-worker, Lincoln Riker, always listens to your station at work. We’re construction workers building a new apartment building. Lincoln loves your station, but that’s not the reason I’m nominating him for this special recognition.
Lincoln always comes to work with a smile, regardless of the weather. He often brings snacks for everyone on the site. He tells us his wife doesn’t mind the baking, and it gives them some time to be together when the kids are asleep.
When the COVID-19 lockdown happened earlier this year, all of us were afraid. We didn’t work for a while but when we did, Lincoln made it easier. #covidcarechampion and tag @g987fm!
Covid-Care Champion 8
I nominate my father’s caregiver, Catherine “Cat” Navaro, as a COVID Care Champion. She visits my father 3 to 4 days a week, and she is an angel. My father has Alzheimer’s, and he doesn’t always remember Cat. She doesn’t mind his sudden changes of mood and she is very supportive of him. She continues to visit him during COVID, and I know my father sees her as a friend. Please accept this nomination. #covidcarechampion and tag @g987fm!
Covid-Care Champion 9
Hi G98.7 FM. I want to nominate Angie McCoy as a COVID Care Champion. Angie is an ultrasound technician at a local hospital. She is very friendly, courteous, and helpful. She has continued to show her dedication to the job as COVID struck our hospital. She treats all our patients as though they are her family. Many of our patients tell me they appreciate her loving attitude, as she makes their experience easier to handle.
Angie would never nominate herself for anything, and she deserves this award. #covidcarechampion and tag @g987fm!
She is a strong, dedicated, caring , selfless respectful woman. Always ready to help and go beyond the call of duty without complaints or hesitation. Treats patients as family and not a number while sharing her bubbly personality and infectious laughter.
She among the soldiers in the trenches that do what needs to be done in the world of nursing without seeking recognition. The love and care she has is out of this hemisphere. I admire and respect the person she is and does for our beloved and deserves to be recognized as a Covid Care Champion.
Don’t have photos of my momma in her uniform. But she’s been going beyond the superwoman she already is, and then some. She’s a PSW for St. Joseph’s Villa in Dundas, ON.
This woman here is our champion. She works 7 days with seniors. She very dedicated and takes pride in her job. She would go the extra mile for her clients.
Ann Marie Wellington
I want to nominate my wife Jennifer. We recently got married and other than our honey moon she doesn’t really take time off.
She works at sunnybrook hospital as a porter.
She works directly with incoming and discharged patients, unaware of the health or condition of arriving patients. Because of covid she is currently working 7 days straight followed by a 4 day work week and then repeating 7 days straight.
She is an amazing person who puts her work and patients she helps before everything else. I couldn’t be any more proud of her or the work she does.
