“Seeing after one treatment of stem cell what has happened and the progress that he's made is mind blowing," she says. "He wants to get up. He wants to do things. He wants to be part of the world again,” she explained. “He's walking better. He's talking better. His symptoms are lessening. He is building the muscle strength back that he needs after his spine surgery.”
She said now that everything is falling into place her family feels hopeful for his recovery.
A few days ago, she started the #StayAtHomeForOzzy initiative on Instagram urging people to stay indoors and self-isolate: “ these are the sacrifices we must make. I stay home for my mum and dad. If you don't have anyone to stay home for I beg you #StayHomeForOzzy.”

I wish there was something I could say to comfort you all. Some wisdom I could drop on you to relive you from the fear that surrounds us all right now. The truth is I am scared too. Both of my parents are high risk especially my dad. If I would have known 3 weeks ago when I sent them off to panama that that was gonna be the last time I got to hug and kiss them for a while… I would have held on a little longer. However these are the sacrifices we must make. I stay home for my mum and dad. If you don't have anyone to stay home for I beg you #StayHomeForOzzy help put a smile on my dads face while he is in quarantine by posting a pic of your best Ozzy impersonation and #StayHomeForOzzy I love you all 💜
