Americans around the country are sending prayers to the family of the famed Rev. Jesse Jackson, Sr. The 79-year old civil rights icon and his 77-year old wife of nearly 60 years, Jacqueline, remained hospitalized with COVID. While Jackson—who has Parkinson’s disease— had been vaccinated in January and is being treated for a breakthrough infection, his wife had not been vaccinated due to a pre-existing condition.

“Let us all pray for Rev. and Mrs. Jesse Jackson,” the Rev. Al Sharpton tweeted. “They need our sincere and intense prayers. Prayer changes things!!!

“Praying for Rev. Jesse Jackson and Jacqueline Jackson,” wrote Bernice King, daughter of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

“Earlier this month @RevJJackson stood with our movement outside the Capitol to extend the eviction moratorium,” posted Congresswoman Cori Bush. “Our movement now stands with him and his wife, Jacqueline, as they recover from COVID-19. Our prayers are with them both for a speedy and full recovery”.

And from Senator Bernie Sanders, came this tweet, “The Rev. Jesse Jackson has been one of the great leaders of our time in the fight for racial, social and economic justice. Jane and I and all Americans wish them a speedy and full recovery.”  

In daily updates, the family has shared that both are responding well to treatment in a Chicago hospital.

“The health status of both my parents is unchanged,” Jonathan Jackson, said in a statement. “They continue to rest comfortably and to receive treatment.

“My family’s focus is totally on my parents… We continue to be eternally grateful for the thousands of prayers and well wishes that our family continues to receive.”

In an exclusive telephone conversation from his hospital bed with National Newspaper Publishers Association President, Dr. Benjamin Chavis, Jackson said he was doing fine and that he and his wife were receiving the best of care, adding that his battle for freedom, justice, and equality would continue.

  • Around age 60 I noticed that my handwriting was getting smaller and I was writing faster. I also noticed a small tremor in my right hand. The doctor went over my different symptoms and he suspected I’d either had a small stroke or the beginnings of Parkinson ‘s disease. After finding a neurologist and some testing I was diagnosed with the beginning stages of Parkinson’s disease. That was 4 years ago. I took Sinimet four times a day to control my symptoms, which include falling, imbalance, gait problems, swallowing difficulties, and slurring of speech, A year ago, I began to do a lot of research and came across Kycuyu Health Clinic (www. kycuyuhealthclinic. com) and their Parkinson’s HERBAL TREATMENT. After seeing positive reviews from other patients, I quickly started on the treatment, I experienced significant reduction/decline in major symptoms, including tremors, muscle weakness, speech problems, difficulty swallowing, balance problems, chronic fatigue and others, The truth is you can get off the drugs and help yourself by trying natural methods, i live symptoms free.

  • My Parkinson disease symptoms started at the age of 47. The fingers on my left hand were stiff and were difficult to move. People noticed that my walk was not normal. I was often asked if I was hurt. I noticed nothing different about my walk. It was difficult getting up from a chair and getting out of a car. I was diagnosed a year later ,it was the onset of tremors starting in my right hand that caused my other symptoms to be recognized as Parkinson’s.. I am now 59. With the new herbal medicine for Parkinson I purchased from  Multivitamincare . org  was my only way to get rid of my PD,the herbal formula effectively reversed my condition and alleviated all my symptoms, people are suffering from this Parkinson disease due to lack of information.

  • I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease a year ago at the age of 68. For several months I had noticed tremors in my right hand and the shaking of my right foot when I was sitting. My normally beautiful cursive writing was now small cramped printing. And I tended to lose my balance. Neurologist had me walk down the hall and said I didn’t swing my right arm. I had never noticed! I was in denial for a while as there is no history in my family of parents and five older siblings, but now accept I had classic symptoms. I was taking pramipexole (Sifrolh), carbidopa/levodopa and Biperiden, 2 mg. and started physical therapy to strengthen muscles. nothing was really working to help my condition.I went off the Siferol (with the doctor’s knowledge) and started on Parkinson’s herbal formula i ordered from Solution Health Herbal Clinic, my symptoms totally declined over a 2 weeks use of the Parkinson’s disease natural herbal formula. i am now almost 70 and doing very well, the disease is totally reversed!!
