Wait, There’s More
Recently, Fred’s wife LeeAnn Jemmott shared details about his condition. Despite initial suggestions about Fred possibly losing the battle, the initial update revealed he was improving.
“It was just like — he’s gone and he’s gonna die, that’s it. I don’t even know how I felt, I just felt like I was going to die,” said Jemmott. “Now, instead of the ventilator supporting him 100%, it’s supporting him 70%. … We need him like he is our strength, he is our good vibes, our positivity. … Don’t just assume they are going to die. Because that’s all we are hearing is people dying, dying, dying. He’s winning, he’s winning.” (News 12 Brooklyn)
