Feed The Frontline – Dale’s Story

Dale Ward is a Calgary comedian and artist who contracted COVID-19 in November and required urgent medical care. His initial symptoms included constant fever and chills, lack of taste and smell and the worst headache he’s ever had. As the infection escalated, it triggered severe asthma symptoms and he struggled to breathe.

Fearing for his life, Dale was admitted to Foothills Medical Centre for critical care. Developing pneumonia as a result of COVID-19 only added to an already scary and life-changing experience. As Dale begins his road to recovery, and like so many people who have been afflicted by and survived COVID-19, he recognizes the extraordinary healthcare heroes who helped him breathe again and encourages others to stay healthy by following public health guidance.
