by AmericasKeepersAdmin on April 03, 2020

As medical professionals continue to be on the front line in the fight against the coronavirus many of them face the challenge of not wanting to bring the deadly disease home to their families.

Emily Phillips’s husband, Jason is an ER doctor. They have two young children, a 6 month old and a son who has asthma. The couple has struggled with fear of having the coronavirus brought into their home.

“Imagine being scared of living in your own home. I love my husband and it isn’t that I didn’t want him home, but I have an asthmatic son and a 6-month-old baby, so I was worried especially for them.”
– Emily Phillips

After trying to figure out a solution to ensure the safety of their family, the finally found an answer. Emily’s mom made a suggestion of Jason staying in an RV. Fortunately a family friend, Holly Haggard was willing to lend them one for Jason to stay in. The only request from the friend was that they pay it forward.

Holly and Emily decided to start a Facebook group, RVS 4 MDS. The Group exploded. The aim of the group was to connect people who had RVS with medical personnel in need of a place to self isolate so that they would not bring the coronavirus home to their loved ones.

“If you would read the stories that are posted in the group, they bring tears to your eyes. One said a man was sleeping in his shed in the backyard and showering with the garden hose to protect his family, another woman was sleeping on the apartment balcony.”

Daisy Brockman was one of the first people in the group to get an RV for her husband who is an ER doctor in a Texas hospital

“She hooked us up with the little RV that had been donated first, which is ideal for our smaller property. “It is a huge relief that we are able to isolate Reece and keep our house from being infected, but still really support him. To watch this little germ of an idea grow and grow is just amazing.”
– Daisy Brockman

RVS 4 MDS continues to grow. They are looking for people to donate RVS and people to help organize things as well

“It is the most amazing thing I have ever seen in my entire life. Everybody is just coming together, and they don’t care who you are or what you look like, they just want to help.”
“The biggest way people can help right now is everybody caring about everybody. Just look in your heart and do whatever you can to help, that is what I think would be the most important thing.”
– Holly Haggard

The group currently has more than 9,000 people and so far 50 medical personnel have been provided RVS
