Jimmy Kimmel has been quite the topic of the internet this past week. If you may or may not have heard, Jimmy Kimmel delivered a very emotional speech on his show, The Jimmy Kimmel Show, where he revealed that his newborn son had to undergo open heart surgery. Toward the end of his monologue, he thanked the Children’s Hospital of LA and plead to his fans to donate to the hospital.
According to Yahoo! News, that speech made quite the impact on viewers because the hospital has since then received hundreds of calls along with some donations.
CEO and President of CHLA, Paul Viviano, said,
“It was a marvelous thing that he did; it takes a lot of compassion and poise to talk about such a challenging personal situation.”
Kimmel’s son, William, is recovering well and we are so glad he was able to get the help he needed in time! If you haven’t seen the emotional video, check it out below.
