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.❤️
Pink took to Instagram to share the relieving news and went on to express her gratitude to the doctors who helped her and her son. She also acknowledged the value of their ability to get tested as many states across the country struggle to access and execute sufficient tests for their residents.
“This illness is serious and real,” she wrote. “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, and our communities.”
To pave the way forward, Pink pledged to donate $1 million to help in the fight against the devastating illness. The singer-songwriter explained that she will provide $500,000 to the Temple University Hospital Fund in Philadelphia, in honor of her mother, who worked at the facility for 18 years, and $500,000 to the City of Los Angeles Mayor’s Emergency COVID-19 Crisis Fund.
She signed off by thanking all of the medical professionals and heroes helping the nation and the world navigate the pandemic. The artist emphasized that the “next two weeks are crucial: please stay home.”
