FOX8 Highlighting Heroes: Gretchin Whelan, registered nurse

Highlighting Heroes

We are highlighting local heroes who are making sacrifices in their lives to help keep families fed, prepared and safe during the coronavirus crisis.

We are asking FOX8 viewers to tell us about the heroes they encounter on this journey.

This morning, our hero is a registered nurse at Moses Cone Hospital. Gretchin Whelan monitors ICU patients and is recognized for her selfless and caring approach with her patients. Thank you for your service, Gretchin!

If you have a hero you want to share with us, send us a picture of the person and a few sentences about them to

You can also share them on social media by using #highlightingheroes.
