Robert Blackmon is known for his GIFs and comedy, but when his mom became one of the first 10,000 people to be ventilated because of COVID-19 in March of 2020 – he chronicled the experience in what is now a book called “Courage Behind the Mask: A Story of Life, Death and Surviving Covid-19”. The book takes you through a real-time journey from the day before she was hospitalized through her recovery. Blackmon talks about the blessing in this for him and why he was so eager to share this story with others.
