Jennifer Lawrence wants all of her fans to watch this powerful video she came across.
It features a mom who was reportedly told that her 10-month-old daughter needed to undergo open-heart surgery at St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach, Fla.
The mother was also told that the surgery would be “a walk in the park.” However, her daughter sadly died due to surgery complications.
It was revealed that the hospital has financial incentives for performing certain types of surgeries – like open-heart surgery on children – so they push for the operations despite being told by experts that the surgeries are not in the best interest of the patients.
“I just watched this video from Represent.Us,” Jennifer wrote on Facebook on Thursday (April 20), expressing her unhappiness with the way our government has been running. “It’s incredible and horrifying. And it got me thinking: corruption affects all of us, but so many people don’t recognize it. We need to tell each other our stories. We need to show that everyone – our neighbors, our families, our community leaders – everyone we know is touched by corruption. I want to hear your story. How does corruption affect you? #WeDemandBetter Represent.Us/WDB.”
