Through Our Eyes - Image of Nurses

Nursing Research, Education and Wellness at Advocate Christ Medical Center


Through Our Eyes is a 96-page hardcover color coffee table book that collects forty firsthand narratives written by Advocate Christ Medical Center nurses caring for COVID-19 patients. These often difficult, eye-opening historical accounts confirm the suffering, heartbreak, and despair of a pandemic. Yet they also reveal the resilience, bravery and adaptability, not just of our health care team, but of the human spirit. They give a raw glimpse of what is was like to be a COVID-19 nurse—through their eyes. While only time will help ease the fear, agony and despair experienced during this pandemic, there is something we can do to help our nurses right now.

Give a gift to support Nursing Research, Education and Wellness at Advocate Christ Medical Center and provide hope and healing to nurses on the front lines. To learn more from their perspective, you can also purchase the hardcover illustrated book Through Our Eyes, that shares the personal stories and reflections of 40 nurses from Advocate Christ Medical Center during COVID-19.

All proceeds from the sale of this book and any donations received will directly support our nurses, therapists, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals.

“It is my hope that reading about the COVID-19 pandemic through their eyes will elicit a better understanding of how our caregivers have suffered—and yet endured.”
—Lynn Hennessy, Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer
