Sydney Leroux Dwyer is a professional soccer attacker on the pitch.
Off the field, she is “Mom to Cassius & Roux” per her Instagram bio, and was recently attacking COVID-19 with her family.
Leroux Dwyer recently posted about her kids and what they’ve recently gone through:
“For the longest time we’ve heard that children aren’t badly affected by COVID and, maybe, for the most part that is the case,” Leroux Dwyer said in an Instagram post. “For us – it wasn’t. A few weeks ago I woke up to my son screaming in the middle of the night. When I felt his body it was like Cassius was burning from the inside out. The next morning he tested positive for COVID. Three days later it hit my daughter Roux – a fever, vomiting, exhaustion and an awful cough.”
The fútbol attacker shared how this has been for her and family in attacking this virus.
“It has been an extremely hard couple of weeks, but thankfully things are much better now,” Leroux Dwyer said.
Leroux Dwyer went on to mention why she shared these difficult few weeks with the world.
“I wanted to share this story to urge everyone to continue taking this virus seriously, when it comes to both you AND your children,” Leroux Dwyer said. “I am extremely grateful that both my kids are back to good health and lucky that, somehow, I managed to stay healthy throughout. So please keep wearing your mask, stay socially distanced and get a vaccine if/when you can so we can beat this virus together.”
