Jennifer Garner is in Atlanta filming “Miracles from Heaven,” about a young girl miraculously cured of illness.
During her downtime Jen visited with a young patient going through a medical ordeal of his own.
Around Thanksgiving 2014, Henry Shepherd was diagnosed with cancer called Osteosarcoma after complaining of pain in his knee.
An online fundraiser seeks to assist his family:
“This type of cancer will present Henry and the Shepherd family with many difficult challenges physically, emotionally and financially for many years to come. The Shepherds have found themselves putting their former lives on hold and are living a “new normal” including multiple rounds of chemotherapy, medical procedures, surgeries and regular trips to Atlanta and Jacksonville.”
