The pop star made a generous donation to Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on behalf of her godson Leo Thames. Jaime King posted a shot of the letter informing her of the donation in her son's name. "Tribute gifts are essential to patient care programs and services at Cedars-Sinai," the letter stated. "They make the good work of the physicians, surgeons, researchers, and nursing staff possible and we are very grateful to receive them."
The mom-of-two took to Instagram to thank her best friend and in doing so revealed that her young son was diagnosed with "Transposition of the Great Arteries AKA TGA" at 20-weeks old.
"He had a major heart surgery, that was terrifying, and traumatic for us as parents, for our family. Only a few of our best friends knew. I felt that I had to protect him in fear of the unknown, fear he would not make it. We felt isolated & confused. @taylorswift does so many selfless acts that go unnoticed because she does them silently, from such a great place of unconditional giving," Jaime attached to the letter. "As the Godmother of Leo Thames for his birthday she gave an incredible donation to the people that saved his life Dr. Allistar Phillips and his brilliant team. It made us realize that silence cannot connect other parents & people going through these issues. TS knew that by giving back in this way would be the greatest gift one could give to us, to Leo Thames and to all of those with congenital heart issues. She came to the ICU to comfort us, to hold and bond with him with such grace & strength."
