The Bon Jovi The front man and his wife, Dorothea, have kept busy during the coronavirus crisis by helping to keep his charity’s new food bank in Long Island, New York, stocked with basics to help the local community, but the heavy lifting has had an effect on the 58-year-old body.
“We started a food bank due to COVID (the pandemic) …” explained Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation founder in Armchair Expert with Dax ShepherdA podcast, so we’ve served food to seven stores over the summer. You can imagine its size. ”
“My wife and I and two of the people who were able to let them in were the ones who loaded these tractor trailers and then unloaded these trucks to deliver the food to the warehouse.”
“At first I thought I was cute and said, ‘Hey, this is my new exercise,’ until I realized, ‘My stomach really hurts …’ I’ve got an legitimate hernia.”
The singer was diagnosed with a “very bad” umbilical hernia, which occurs when a portion of the small intestine pushes through a tear in the abdominal wall near the navel, and was recently taken under the knife to fix the problem.

“I can’t sing right now, I can’t exercise, I can’t do everything. It’s so bad…” he groaned. “I’m on the second day, and I couldn’t sing and couldn’t shower while I liked,” That wouldn’t be fun. ”
However, the musician, who has been promoting his band’s new album of 2020 online, is glad he has managed to do his part to keep 25,000 people on East Long Island fed over the past five months of the pandemic. “It was cool and took a souvenir out of the deal … – Nice hernia operation!” He laughed.
