(WDIV / NBC News) Natisha Fudge is a former nursing assistant who has seen her fair share of patients, especially over the last few months. But this summer, her occupation has had a significant impact on her family.

"In May while I was working a COVID unit," she says. "I was doing 12 hours that night and my mask snapped and within 24 hours, I had full blown COVID."


Her husband Christopher, who's already had a multitude of health problems, later ended up testing positive for COVID-19 and was admitted to Detroit's St. John Hospital in need of a new kidney because of virus complications.

"They initially told us that he was in Stage 3 kidney disease and now we're dealing with seizures and the COVID," Natisha adds.

On top of that, Natisha's mother-in-law also tested positive for the virus.

"We almost lost him during that time and then his mom, we thought she was about to pass also," Natisha says.
