Jaime King Thanks BFF Taylor Swift For 'Incredible Donation' To Hospital That Saved Her Son's Life
The actress has written an open letter to her best friend...
Telling fans about a particularly difficult time for her and her family, the actress described the moment her youngest son Leo underwent 'major heart surgery' at just five-months-old.
Jaime and husband Kylie Newman 'feared he would not make it' at one point, but thanks to the hospital's efforts he's now a healthy, happy boy.
And now in an open letter on Insta, Jaime revealed that her son's godmother, Taylor Swift, made quite the donation to Ceders Sinai on behalf of the family.
"Dear all- at 20 weeks our son was diagnosed with Transposition of the Great Arteries AKA TGA. He had a major heart surgery, that was terrifying, and traumatic for us as parents, for our family," she wrote on Instagram.
"Only a few of our best friends knew. I felt that I had to protect him in fear of the unknown, fear he would not make it. We felt isolated & confused. @taylorswift does so many selfless acts that go unnoticed because she does them silently, from such a great place of unconditional giving."
"As the Godmother of Leo Thames for his birthday she gave an incredible donation to the people that saved his life Dr. Allistar Phillips and his brilliant team. It made us realize that silence cannot connect other parents & people going through these issues.
"TS knew that by giving back in this way would be the greatest gift one could give to us, to Leo Thames and to all of those with congenital heart issues. She came to the ICU to comfort us, to hold and bond with him with such grace & strength.
"Our gift back is to share our story that anyone that is going through this is not alone, we understand & want to stand up to bring awareness in the greatest way possible.
"Leo Thames is the strongest, healthiest boy because of this team. He will live a full and whole life & never have to look back.
"Thank you Taylor & to EVERYONE listed on this letter we love you. With gratitude and humbleness. Jaime and Kyle."
