Bobby Orr is the latest to have a message out during these scary times. 

The Bruins' legend went out of his way to put together a letter to the Massachusetts General Hospital and took the time to thank all the workers involved in the battle against COVID-19. 

Check out some excerpts of the letter below:

"This message is for everybody currently on the front lines at Mass. General, doing what you all do so well. Thank you to the physicians, nurses, technicians, custodians, administrators, supply handlers — everyone there who is contributing in these unprecedented times.



"The battle against COVID-19 could never be managed without your tireless dedication, and please know that the people you serve understand your commitment, and we do not take it for granted. This pandemic has yet [again] demonstrated what everyone at Mass. General is made of as you go about your daily routines."

"You are not only saving lives at your wonderful facilities — you are also protecting so many more people beyond your hospital walls as a function of your best efforts.


"It strikes me that the word ‘hero' is often used to describe athletes in our society, but in my eyes, YOU are the true heroes that I personally look up to and [you] are constantly on my mind. This virus is no game, so we need real life heroes to step up and bring it under control. Thankfully, that is exactly what you are doing.

"Undoubtedly, the days and weeks ahead will test us all in many ways. But none will be tested more than those of you who continue to manage, treat and research the virus day after day after day. Given your efforts and expertise, I have great confidence in the eventual outcome of this pandemic, in no small measure because of the excellence I have personally witnessed at Mass. General.

"To all of you, please keep on fighting the good fight, and thank you so much for all you do."

The death toll is currently at 260 at the state of Massachusetts.
