(WJW)-Today kicks off National Nurses Week.  FOX 8 and Kaulig Giving would like to salute local nurses as Cleveland’s Own.

Today we recognize, 18-year-old Alexis Pickett, who is working on getting her RN degree while also working long hours taking care of COVID-19 patients as a nurse assistant at Hillcrest Hospital. 

Melissa Clay is an LPN at Saint Augustine Health Campus. Her daughter nominated her. Melissa is a breast cancer survivor and she is still caring for others despite being on medication that makes her immunocompromized. Stay safe, Melissa. 

We also want to salute Brianna Case, who is a registered nurse at the Cleveland Clinic. Her mom nominated her and said the 23-year-old loves helping others and is a remarkable young lady.

To all of the nurses, we thank you for all you do.
