Actress Octavia Spencer is stepping in to help patients who are affected by the coronavirus pandemic, according to NBC News.

Spencer recently donated breathing monitors to assist hospitals in her home state of Alabama and the state that’s been hit the hardest, New York, she wrote on Instagram this week.
