BREAKING: Broadway alum Nick Cordero’s wife reveals he passed away after a tough battle with COVID-19 complications: ‘God now has another angel in heaven’
Nick Cordero has died tragically after battling for a lifetime in hospital for 94 days due to COVID-19-related complications.
The death of the 41-year-old Broadway alum was announced on Sunday by wife Amanda Kloots.
“God now has another angel in heaven. My dear husband passed away this morning. He was surrounded by love by his family, singing and praying as he gently left this earth, “she wrote.
Nick Cordero passed away, said wife Amanda Kloots
Cordero was first admitted to Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles in late March after testing positive for the coronavirus.
The Bullets Over Broadway star had to have one of his legs amputated on April 18 after contracting blood clots while on a ventilator.
While admitted, Nick also went through a host of other complications, including two minor strokes, septic shock, and fungus in his lungs, as reported by wife Amanda.
In a series of updates shared on Instagram this week, Amanda claimed that her husband was doing ‘slightly better’ after getting off his blood pressure medication on Thursday.
In an interview with Gayle King on CBS This Morning, Amanda said the “ultimate goal” was for Nick to have a double lung transplant so that he could live the life he “wanted.”
But she warned that “there should be a lot of things waiting in line” to even be a candidate for such a procedure.
A GoFundMe set up by Amanda’s friends in April has already reached $ 593,573 to help with medical expenses that were ‘already starting to come in’ at the time, according to the description on the fundraising page.
She also had revealed this week that she planned to refinance the couple’s LA home to pay medical bills.
Before Nick fell ill in March, the couple had recently moved from New York to Los Angeles so that the Broadway actor could star in Rock of Ages Hollywood.
Amanda and Nick married in 2017 and are parents to their one-year-old son Elvis.
