José worked at a Chicago restaurant before he got sick. He’d like to work again, but he doesn’t know when he’ll have the strength.

Jose sits on the edge of his bed at his home in Mt. Prospect, IL on Monday, August 17, 2020. He spent three months in the hospital and according to his daughter doctors did not think he would make it. He says, “All of the nurses clapped for me as I was leaving the hospital.” Photo by Eddie Quinones.
