Featured in FiftyPlusAdvocate: ‘I love being alive,’ says singer-actor, COVID-19 survivor Bob DiCicco

Westwood – Beginning April 12, singer and actor Bob DiCicco of Westwood battled the coronavirus while hospitalized for 43 days, 30 of which he was on a ventilator in the ICU. Intensive rehabilitation followed. Heavily sedated during much of his hospitalization, he ultimately got updates from his brother. “My brother said that they weren’t giving me much of a chance to survive,” DiCicco shared by phone from a rehabilitation facility. Later in DiCicco’s six-week hospital stay, his brother was able to relay a more encouraging message. “The doctor told my brother that I reminded him of a tenacious bulldog with a great will to live – which is true,” DiCicco said. “I was never scared. If it weren’t for the nurses there, I never would have made it. Hats off to them!”
