"There was an emotional send-off this morning of medical teams leaving Cayuga Medical Center in two Cornell Campus to Campus buses headed to New York City to aid in the fight against COVID-19. There were hundreds of cars and people lining Route 96 from the hospital headed to Ithaca, and I imagine many more along the route. Sage Peake was on the route with her boys holding heartfelt posters. Sage, said in an email, 'Emotional indeed! I did my best to hold back tears, wishing my friends and former colleagues well. We are seeing some of the best of people right now; it's so powerful.'"
