“This illness is serious and real,” she wrote. “People need to know that the illness affects the young and old, healthy and unhealthy, rich and poor.”
n a follow-up tweet, Pink announced that she’d be donating $500,000 to Temple University’s Hospital Emergency Fund and another $500,000 to Los Angeles’ crisis fund.
