Nick Cordero, who originated the role of Sonny in the 2016 Broadway production of "A Bronx Tale: A Musical", is set to have his right leg amputated due to complications stemming from his ongoing battle with COVID-19, his wife Amanda Kloots said on Saturday. The fund was started by Erin Silver, Aimee Song and Jacey Duprie to help cover Nick Cordero's hospital bills, treatment expenses and to help his wife Amanda Kloots, who is looking after their little child, Elvis.
He later had complications after his blood pressure increased and had a blood clot in his right leg which needed to be amputated for him to survive.
The news came two days after Kloots suggested she was unsure her husband would ever be able to walk again due to "blood flow issues" in his leg.
He is hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where he lives with his family while performing in "Rock of Ages".

On her official Facebook page, Ardern posted a print-out Easter egg that children can color in. New Zealand is almost halfway through the lockdown that was announced in late March.
"They had him on blood thinners for the clotting, unfortunately the blood thinners were causing other issues", Amanda said on Saturday.
"They're taking him back to the room to recover and rest, so hopefully he'll just kind of relax and rest". "I've been talking to the nurses and doctor and they've been wonderful". "He made it through the surgery, which is really big because obviously his body is pretty weak", Kloots said in a video shared to her Instagram Story. "He is hearing the support, the love and your voices everyday". I asked for a miracle yesterday because my spirits were low and I think we got one today. "I just know it".
"For Nick, he is doing the best he possibly can, which is a huge hallelujah". So we took him off the blood thinners.
She marveled that 'right now, this is like a time where people don't even have their jobs and you're donating 10, 20 dollars, like I just like, that's blowing me away'.
