Popstar Pink has penned an open letter detailing her battle with COVID-19, alongside her three-year-old son, Jameson.

The 40-year-old singer and mom-of-two shared her candid account living with the novel coronavirus in a Mother’s Day essay published by NBC News. She writes:

"Battling COVID-19 along with my 3-year-old son was the most physically and emotionally challenging experience I have gone through as a mother.

"Weeks after receiving our test results, my son was still ill and feverish. It was a terrifying time, not knowing what might come next."

Pink also cut her own hair in lockdown - and this was the result:

Pink also recognized that she was in a privileged position, and that there are mothers all over the US and the world struggling to practice social distancing measures, adding: "But our story is not unique; there are mothers all over America and the world that are facing this same uncertainty every single day.

"Not every family, especially those living on reservations, or in refugee camps, slums, or favelas, are able to practice social distancing. In many parts of the world, it can take hours just to access water, and even then, soap may be an impossible luxury.”

"As we begin to envision what life will look like on the other side of this, we need to put ourselves in the shoes of moms around the globe and consider doing what we can to help keep their babies safe. How can we partake in ensuring their access to the basic human rights that so many of us are afforded each and every day?"

The 'Just Like A Pill' singer then noted that she is supporting domestic organizations that are striving to protect children and frontline workers amid the pandemic - specifically, UNICEF.

Pink is currently an ambassador for UNICEF, and she spotlighted the organization's reach in "helping governments and communities prevent the disease from spreading by training health workers, assisting teachers and schools, and working with all levels of government."

She added: "We might not physically be able to be there for every child, but it’s a comfort to know that organizations like UNICEF are."

Pink initially revealed that she and Jameson had tested positive for the novel coronavirus in a heartfelt and open Instagram post. Writing to her 7.9 million followers last month, she said:

"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. [...]

"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."

Pink added that she would be donating $500,000 to the Temple University Hospital Emergency Fund in Philadelphia in honor of her mother, Judy Moore, "who worked there for 18 years in the Cardiomyopathy and Heart Transplant Center."

The 'So What' singer also donated $500,000 to the City of Los Angeles Mayor’s Emergency COVID-19 Crisis Fund.

She concluded by saying" "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."
