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.”
The 26-year-old Hunger Games star and the 48-year-old director first met while working on Mother! together and have been making their long distance relationship work.
Darren recently visited Jennifer on the set of Red Sparrow in Budapest and Jennifer has been spending her time off with him in New York City.
“Jennifer is comfortable with an older guy because she is mature and focused,” a source told People.
Another source added, “Jen has been mesmerized by his talent and brains since she started working with him. They are very sweet together and seem happy…They keep to themselves and don’t seem to want a lot of attention.”
They continued, “Jen is a serious actress and being around another person in the business who is intense about what he does has been good for her.”
We’re glad to hear Jennifer and Darren are so happy together!
The 26-year-old actress showed up at Norton Children’s Hospital to meet the kids and the staff on Saturday afternoon (December 24) in Louisville, Kent.
Jenniferdonated $2 million to the hospital earlier this year and she also raised money for the American Heart Assocation and Jefferson County Public Schools via an early screening of her movie Passengers this week, according to Wave 3 News.
