Atlanta, GA — Brent Green, a 36-year old African American mother of twins who had no known underlying conditions, has died due from coronavirus. Her family believes she started getting sick after going to the grocery store to buy food for her children.
“She was happy, going around doing everything that she needed to do,” Linda Green, Brent’s mother told WSTV about her. She was a responsible employee working for a reputable company in Atlanta and a loving mother to 12-year old twin boys.
However, a few days after a trip to the grocery store, she began having a headache and shortness of breath.
She was hospitalized, where she tested positive for COVID-19. Her condition initially seemed to be getting better, but it eventually turned to the worse.
Her mother had a chance to speak to her for the last time and told her, “Fight baby and do everything you can to come back to me.”
She remembered Brent responded, “‘I love you too mama.’ Those were the last words I heard come out of my daughter’s mouth.”
Linda Green wanted to share her daughter’s experience to serve as a lesson to others to take the coronavirus seriously.
“Please do all the things you can to fight this disease and not be among each other and take it lightly,” Green said. “If you continue to mislead and think that this is not for real, you will not see the people that you love (again).”
