While difficult to handle, Fortier is nothing but supportive. He often stays up until Ryan gets off of work just to check in on him. “He loves what he does, I pray every time he goes out the door,” said Fortier, “He looks forward to helping people during this pandemic.” “How he could accidentally contract the virus… you always have a little worry.” Ken Fortier describes his son Ryan as thoughtful and helpful young man. (WBNG) — One local father is sharing his experience of what it’s like to send a child off to battle the coronavirus as a front line worker. And as a parent, Fortier worries. “I’m very proud of Ryan,” he said. All grown up, Ryan works as a patient care assistant at Lourdes Hospital, working with those who are infected with or may have the coronavirus. His job involves dangerous work that he could literally bring home with him, changing out of his scrubs as soon as he gets home. No matter the job or circumstance, his role as dad, never stops.
