It seems like a lifetime ago that DOLLY PARTON announced she was donating $1 million to coronavirus research. That was back in April, and here we are some seven months later finding out she may have helped save us all.
The money helped Moderna develop a vaccine that's been almost 95% effective in clinical trials. You can even find her name in the acknowledgments of the New England Journal of Medicine article.
She was asked about it yesterday on the"Today Show". Quote, "Yeah, that's what I understand. I haven't read up enough. They told me that before I went on the air that they may be asking me about that.
"I'm just happy that anything I do can help somebody else, and when I donated the money to the COVID fund, I just wanted it to do good. Evidently, it is. Let's just hope we find a cure real soon."
