And the Cherry Hill mother of two wants to emphasize the importance of heeding the very first signs of COVID-19.

But what also comes through when Breslow speaks is the pain and anguish as her 50-year-old husband Brett battles the virus in a South Jersey hospital.

“I could see him through the glass (of an emergency room window),” says Breslow, remembering her final view of her husband on Friday night.

“I can’t see him. I can’t touch him,” laments Breslow, her voice breaking.

But Breslow can reach the public, and she wants to alert younger people that they, too, face a risk from the coronavirus.

“I just feel that we have to change the picture that’s out there (that the virus primarily threatens the elderly),” she says. “If we don’t do that, a lot of people are going to get sick.”

When the symptoms worsened, they arranged for Brett to be tested for the coronavirus Friday afternoon at a drive-thru site outside a Cooper medical building on Brace Road in Cherry Hill.

Hours later, Amy Breslow took her husband to Cooper’s emergency department in Camden.

“I haven’t seen him since Friday and that’s one of the hardest things,” she says, her voice quavering.

“He deteriorated very quickly,” says Breslow, noting her husband’s test results came back positive on Monday. “It’s been touch-and-go.”

Breslow, a college admissions adviser, has praise and sympathy for the healthcare professionals in Cooper’s intensive care unit.

“They’re stressed to the max,” she says. “They have so many people with COVID-19.”

She’s also urging people to act quickly if they see the symptoms of COVID-19.

“You can’t wait,” says Breslow. “If you start to run a fever, if you’re coughing a bit, call the doctor right away.”

“Don’t be stubborn,” adds Breslow, who notes her husband initially balked at seeing a doctor.

“I made him go,” she says.

Breslow is awaiting results from her own test for the virus, while her daughter has tested negative. She’s attempting to arrange a test for her son, a college student who returned home from Chicago.

The family's seen an outpouring of support during the quarantine period, which began March 20 at their home in the Eagle Oak neighborhood.

“Everybody’s texting and praying,” she says. “People are dropping food off at the doorstep.”

And while she’s in isolation, Breslow notes in one way she’s not alone.

“I’m sure that everyone with a loved one in that ICU is going through what I’m going through,” she observes.
