Angel Austin is a nurse at Owensboro Heart and Vascular. She provides the ultimate in care for people with heart disease, along with other ailments. It's our pleasure to honor her during National Nurses Week. #HERO

This week we are honoring the best and brightest nurses in the tri-state, based on your nominations. Shouldn't we all thank a nurse that impacts our community every single day and in the most important way? Here at WBKR, we say yes. Yes we should! We've teamed up with Madisonville Garage Doors to do just that.

Angel, is a true angel, and was nominated multiple times. This is what has been said about her incredible dedication to her job and family.

"I met Angel over 12 years ago in nursing school. From working long term care and the hospital with her; she is truly one of the best nurses I know. She works 12-16 hour days, or more, without complaining. She takes care of her patients all day and then goes home to take care of her two boys. She also works as a PRN on evenings and weekends at a long term care facility. She gives it her all even if she is having a bad day. No virus will stop Angel from loving what she does. She is not only my best friend, but my sister for life."

"Angel has devoted her life to helping those in need and raising her two rambunctious boys. Her kindness and generosity are limitless, and would give a complete stranger her last dollar. She continues to inspire many and is my personal hero."

Angel and all nurses on the frontline are our heroes! Thank you.
