Our Vaccine Fairy Godmother 

Dolly Parton can do it all.

Back in 2013, famed amusement park owner Dolly Parton was involved in a minor car accident, which led her to meet Dr. Naji Abumrad. Parton and Abumrad formed an unlikely friendship, one which eventually led Parton to donate $1 million to COVID-19 research. Now, it seems Parton’s donation helped to fuel the promising new Moderna vaccine. It’s a weird, weird world we’re living in.
