"I didn't think I was going to get into Corona until it did become a disaster and a need for crisis relief. We are focused on hydration, immunity building kits, sanitization kits and gel, and really now masks" she revealed.

There are currently a shorting of masks around the world, especially for Medical workers on the front lines. "What's become the current, most pressing crisis is people do not have masks...the medical workers that are working on patients day-in-day-out, they are doing their job, they are heroes, they are warriors, they are going into work horrified for their lives and they don't have masks."

BStrong had already pledged 150,000+ masks, and in a recent interview with RADIO.COM revealed that they have pledged 1-million masks to go to hospitals all over that don't have the supplies. Mass General was one of the first hospitals she was looking to supply, as her boyfriend had a connection to the president.

Since many Boston area hospitals have reached out and many will be receving masks from BStrong. Frankel noted that this week Mass General was receiving 10,000! She is very connected to this city and it's hospitals -- not long ago Newton-Wellesley hospital saved her life (anaphylactic shock).

Frankel notes that if you want to help support her cause then donate to BStrong!
