Re: N-95 Masks?

Lori Sommer

Hi V, 
They are stressed. Meg was in tears last night when we spoke. She had a man pass the day before then worked a stressful 12hours and a 50min meeting with nursing staff, management and CEO. They outlined their plan for a crisis. I guess it got pretty emotional saying it may go as far as choosing patio s for the ventilators, multiple vent patients per nurse (usually 1 on 1 in normal circumstances) and the lack of supplies. They are planning for the worst. She was better today. Got some sleep, we brought her some Tp, went on a hike and brought Milo back with us.

Thank you for all the email.  Still no masks but Chris Ishisoko sent me a link to an Instagram post stating that Stanford is also looking for supplies. Thanks for the info, Chris. Let’s not forget Stanford if you have any to donate.

Hello FFBC Friends,

A lot of you know that Phil and I have twin daughters.  You may not know that both are ICU nurses, one in Seattle and the other closer to home in Santa Rosa.  They've both told me that N-95 masks are currently running low in their hospitals.  I had a generous offer of masks from club member, Jennifer Shively, to donate and I REALLY appreciate it.  The next logical step is to ask my riding buddies - if you have sealed N-95 masks that you are willing to part with, please let me know offline or text me at (510) 693-8624.  I'm willing to pick up even a single mask and ensure it is donated to their hospitals.  Otherwise, please consider donating them to YOUR local hospital that is probably also experiencing the same issue.  I have heard that Stanford is not experiencing a shortage at this time.

Thanks so much!
