On Doubling Down With the Derricos, this isn’t GG’s first health issue. GG, who had previously survived lung cancer, as well as Deon, Karen, and all 14 of their children, tested positive for COVID-19, despite the family’s precautions.
Doctors should be able to figure out what was causing her health problems, hopefully. We hope GG is in much better spirits today!
