Singer Pink and her 3-year-old son Jameson tested positive for the coronavirus in March and have since recovered. But the three-time Grammy winner and her preschooler had a ‘terrifying’ experience which dragged on for weeks.
Pink opened up about her and Jamson’s ‘physically and emotionally challenging’ battle with the disease in a recent essay published by NBC News.
The 40-year-old wrote: “Battling COVID-19 along with my three-year-old son was the most physically and emotionally challenging experience I have gone through as a mother.
“Weeks after receiving our test results, my son was still ill and feverish. It was a terrifying time, not knowing what might come next.”
Pink revealed in early April that she and her son tested positive for the coronavirus after showing symptoms and had since recovered.
She announced in her Instagram statement that she was donating $1million to COVID-19 relief.
She continued: “But our story is not unique; there are mothers all over America, and the world, that are facing this same uncertainty every single day.
“Not every family, especially those living on reservations, or in refugee camps, slums, or favelas, are able to practice social distancing. In many parts of the world it can take hours just to access water, and even then, soap may be an impossible luxury.”
Pink concluded in her essay: “This Mother’s Day, as you hold your babies tight, I encourage you to think about all the mamas around the world who still need our help.”
