When Charlunda and David Thompson celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary in June, the Inkster couple will mark “a new beginning.”
“Together, we’re stronger,” Charlunda said.
The Thompsons are beginning the next phase in their journey of recovery from COVID-19, the novel coronavirus that’s sickened millions of people worldwide and killed thousands.
Charlunda, 45, a hospice nurse, and David, 42, a middle school math teacher, beat the virus. Char graduated May 6 from Mary Free Bed’s ReCOVery℠ Unit, and – after virtual physical therapy with Mary Free Bed’s Outpatient Services – David was able to pick her up.
