Actress Jennifer Garner helped to lift the spirits of a young cancer sufferer by making a surprise visit to the boy’s hospital room.
The “Dallas Buyers Club” star, who has been filming “Miracles from Heaven” in Atlanta, Georgia, and her co-star Kylie Rogers showed up at the Scottish Rite hospital unannounced to visit Henry Shepherd, reported People magazine.
“I think she was flattered that he recognised her. She visited with us for a while, and it’s hard to explain, it just felt so natural. She was so down to earth, so genuine,” boy’s mother said.
“Someone said they saw her crying at the nurses’ station after seeing all of the sick children with cancer. I think it really got to her, especially as a mother. She is a very sweet person with a very big heart,” she added.
Garner and Rogers posed for pictures with Shepherd and his twin sister and also stopped to visit the other children.
