Tennessee Woman Shares Her Struggle As 12 Family Members Are Diagnosed With COVID-19

A Springfield, Tennessee woman shares her struggle as twelve members of her family have been diagnosed with COVID-19.

Ashley Woodson talked with NEWs4 Nashville about her dad, DJ Johnny Gardner, has been diagnosed with COVID-19 and because of the virus, her dad had a blood clot that traveled to his brain that caused him to have a stoke.

Woodson also shared that COVID took the life of her grandfather, Robert Woodson, and has spread throughout her family.

“It’s so tragic,” Woodson said. “12 of my family members have diagnosed with COVID. My family is in the hospitals fighting for their lives. My grandmother’s in ICU. My aunt is in ICU. I have a little girl. Her name is Kimmy Ray. Even my 19-month baby tested positive for COVID. COVID is horrible. It’s a horrible thing. It’s a nightmare. It feels like I’m in a dream. I can’t even pick up the phone and call family. Everyone is so sick. It’s so overwhelming to know I’m the only one who didn’t test positive, so I’m trying to stay strong for everyone.”

Most of Woodson’s family that has been diagnosed live in Springfield while the others live in Atlanta, Georgia.

Woodson is hoping that her father will be able to return to being apart family photos and “everyone’s good times.”

“The doctors are saying there is a chance he may come home, but will need extensive rehabilitation,” said Woodson. “I believe in God for a miracle.”
