Rod Stewart Sends Surprise $5K Check to Nurse Who Was in a COVID-19 Coma
Rod Stewart surprised a student nurse from the U.K. who recently spent weeks in a coma battling COVID-19.
Per BBC News, Natasha Jenkins, a mother of three, was on a ventilator for 22 days in a coma before being finally sent home. The BBC shared an emotional video of her reunion with her children, which caught the attention of Stewart who then sent her a signed photo and a check for £5,000 ($6,106 USD.) On the photo, Stewart wrote, “Hi Natasha, a small gift to help you through the rough times.”
Jenkins will need 12 months of rehabilitation and is moving with the assistance of a walker due to the effects COVID-19 had on her. While she has work ahead, she said, “I’m doing really good now. When I saw what Rod Stewart had sent me I was absolutely gob-smacked. It was a really, really lovely kind thing for him to do.”
Jenkins said she wants to use the money on her children saying, “They’ve been through so much.”
