Christopher Cross opened up on this week's CBS Sunday Morning about how COVID 19 led to an even bigger health crisis.
The 80’s singer-songwriter revealed that three weeks after being diagnosed with the virus -- and then showing signs of recovery -- he then developed the neurological condition Guillain-Barre Syndrome. That left his legs paralyzed for 10 days and lingering complications that could take a year to heal.
Christopher still needs a cane when walking, and at times, his speech and memory are also affected. Cross calls them "the worst 10 days of my life" and says he's speaking out because "it’s important for people to know you can get this disease... I felt it was sort of my obligation to share with people. Look, this is a big deal. Like, you’ve got to wear your mask. You’ve got to take care of each other. Because, you know, this could happen to you." (Variety)
