MacKay works to treatment coronavirus patients. She told WBZ-TV that having "the medical community come together has been wonderful."

"We feel so supported. You never feel alone," she told WBZ-TV. "It is so sad to see these people who are suffering and a lot of them are suffering alone and they don't have their loved ones with them and we've both witnessed that. But we become their family when they are in these situations."
