Earlier this month, Abigail Breslin asked friends and followers for “prayers and positivity” for her father, revealing that he had become sick and been placed on a ventilator.
She also asked people to take the proper precautions around COVID, saying: “A mask is FAR LESS uncomfortable than a ventilator. Wear your damn mask. Please. No one should go thru this.”
