Two weeks ago my three-year old son, Jameson, and I are were showing symptoms of COVID-19. Fortunately, our primary care physician had access to tests and I tested positive. My family was already sheltering at home and we continued to do so for the last two weeks following the instruction of our doctor. Just a few days ago we were re-tested and are now thankfully negative. It is an absolute travesty and failure of our government to not make testing more widely accessible. This illness is serious and real. People need to know that the illness affects the young and old, healthy and unhealthy, rich and poor, and we must make testing free and more widely accessible to protect our children, our families, our friends and our communities. In an effort to support the healthcare professionals who are battling on the frontlines every day, I am donating $500,000 to the Temple University Hospital Emergency Fund in Philadelphia in honor of my mother, Judy Moore, who worked there for 18 years in the Cardiomyopathy and Heart Transplant Center. Additionally, I am donating $500,000 to the City of Los Angeles Mayor’s Emergency COVID-19 Crisis Fund. THANK YOU to all of our healthcare professionals and everyone in the world who are working so hard to protect our loved ones. You are our heroes! These next two weeks are crucial: please stay home. Please. Stay. Home.❤️
Hart went on SirusXM’s The Jason Ellis Show and shared what it was like for his wife and son to both have COVID-19. He noted that both his wife and son both got extremely sick and and added, “My son probably got the worst of the two of them and it debunks the whole theory that this only hits old people.”
Hart went on to share that Pink had extra difficulties in fighting the virus because of her asthma, saying, “It totally attacked her lungs and her chest. She was having a hard time breathing.”
The retired motocross star also revealed that the family has been isolating for several weeks now and at his worst, his son Jameson was fighting a temperature of between 102 to 103 degrees for a solid three weeks straight.
Both Pink and her son have since recovered, but the family continues to be on lock-down, like many others all over the world, in order to remain healthy and safe.
