During a recent interview, Actress Jennifer Lopez admitted to a scare she suffered when her daughter Emme was a mere three weeks old. According to Lopez, she found a Â lump on Emme’s head. Adding that Marc and her “both got very nervous, very very nervous, and I just remember my heart sinking to my feet. I looked at [Marc] and I said, ‘You know if anything happens, I’m not going to be OK, you know that, right?'”
The couple rushed their infant to Children’s Hospital, where Emme underwent a series of tests and even an MRI. Lopez said that “Luckily, in the end she turned out fine.” Lopez added that she “started to wonder, what if I couldn’t afford a doctor or receive the medicines, the procedures?” Shortly after Jennifer decided to team up with CHLA to form the Maribel Foundation to help provide pediatric medical services to those less fortunate.
When James Cameron’s Titanic came out, the film grossed over $1 billion dollars and made stars Leonardo Dicaprio and Kate Winslet household names. Now, over a decade later, the cast and the famed director are giving back to the last remaining link to the 1912 tragedy: 98 year old survivor Millvina Dean.
At the time the famous boat sank, Dean was only nine weeks old, and now she is struggling to keep herself healthy and financially afloat. Irish author and photographer Don Mullan publicly hallenged the Hollywood stars to help the woman, who desperately needed money for her care. Without hesitation, Cameron, DiCaprio, and Winslet contributed to a $30,000 fund which will ensure Millvina is financially secure for the rest of her days. perezhilton.com
