Christopher Cross, a Grammy award-winning singer known for songs like “Sailing” and “Ride Like The Wind,” has had a shocking year after contracting the coronavirus and dealing with some unexpected side effects.
After going through three weeks of sickness, Cross was finally feeling well enough to go to the grocery store. When he got home, though, his legs collapsed and he realized he had something else to contend with.
Cross was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome, which is a condition where the body attacks the nerves. It takes at least a year for victims to recover, though regaining their full faculties can take much longer.
Cross experienced paralysis at first, which turned to using a wheelchair and then walking with a cane.
