Taylor Swift Makes Donation to Hospital That Saved Jaime King's Son

Jaime King just revealed that Taylor Swift donated money to Cedars-Sinai Hospital on behalf of her one-year-old son Leo Thames, who was born with a congenital heart defect.

The former Hart of Dixie actress took to her Instagram to open up for the first time about Leo Thames‘ struggle and how Taylor‘s generous donation helped her and her husband Kyle decide to share their story.

“Dear all- at 20 weeks our son was diagnosed with Transposition of the Great Arteries AKA TGA. 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,” she began.

Jaime continued, “@taylorswift does so many selfless acts that go unnoticed because she does them silently, from such a great place of unconditional giving. 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. Our gift back is to share our story that anyone that is going through this is not alone, we understand & want to stand up to bring awareness in the greatest way possible. Leo Thames is the strongest, healthiest boy because of this team. He will live a full and whole life & never have to look back. Thank you Taylor & to EVERYONE listed on this letter we love you. With gratitude and humbleness πŸ’œ Jaime and Kyle.”

    She does all of these selfless acts so silently that they always seem to end up in the press, strange how that works. Interesting timing considering so much negative press has been going her way….

  • Will

    She gives a lot more than we’ll ever hear, I’d say it’s a little more productive than taking naked selfies.

  • FBannin

    Jamie King is so desperate to get back into the fold.

  • Douglas from Brazil

    That Jaime acts like she’s trying to milk all money and attention from Taylor. She even gave her son to Taylor be the godmother. And JJ always talking about Jaime King? I never heard of her.

  • Joher

    I do believe she has good intentions and she seems to be a good friend is just with her romantic relationships that she has issues, somehow all her exes end up hating her

  • kiley

    they are good friends in real life. I follow both Jaime and Jared on instagram and they are REALLY close. Lots of pictures of Jaime’s boys on Jared’s insta. She was a star on Hart of Dixie. I actually really like her. Taylor, not so much.

  • Suz

    Of course!!!

  • Suz

    You know the problem would have been solved if after she finishes with them, she bites their head off!!! Not literally, you psychos!!! Metaphorically!!!

  • Suz

    There is nothing wrong with her being a generous soul!!! Ms. Swift had been giving to charities more than any one could fathom. But we never hear any of her nemesis contribute to anything. Except being self absorbed, dumb, IGNORAMI STALKERS “SKANKS!!!” By the way, someone should let the “Uneducated, Untalented, Psychotic. Cellulite Filled Katraskankatrasians”, and “The Pervert Psychotic Stalker know whenever they feel “DISORIENTED OR THEIR PSYCHOTIC EPISODES KICKED IN as every one witnessed in the past few months, they should always remember that “THEIR BROTHELS IS ALWAYS LOCATED TO THE LEFT!!! They should know this. At least we hope they should know this!!! In case they forget, someone should remind them that it is where “THE DUMB AS A DOORNAIL I WILL SWIPE LEFT PSYCHOTIC LEFT FIELDER SCOTSMAN RESIDES!!! #THEBROTHELSISALWAYSONTHELEFT!!!

    Shouldn’t her love life be her own business? I know she’s a public figure, but I don’t get why people hate her for something that’s ultimately between her and her ex.

  • Marie

    That’s really lame … who doesn’t have relationship issues?

  • disqus_TvggtPvhvH

    and yet all those ex’s are still SINGLE and not even close to being married. The only one that hates her is Calvin Harris and that is because he was using her and NEVER LIKED her to begin with.

  • disqus_TvggtPvhvH

    It helps bring awareness to the cause when people speak out. When she gave that million dollars she spoke out for the cause it CAUSED THEM TO GAIN more donations from others because Taylor not only gave but asked others to do the same. Why can’t haters understand that? LOL

    Had she just done it quietly, they would have only gotten her donation and NOT THE EXTRA attention from a Taylor Swift donation.

  • V Nats

    Make donation. Make sure everyone knows about it. Receive accolades.

    Nothing wrong with that. Everyone gives differently.

  • kelly

    She’s donating money to charity. Who gives a shit if it makes it into the press or not?

  • V Nats

    They are called self-serving acts of charity. Like the Pharisees loudly praying at the temple. But it’s ok, they are celebrities for a reason.

  • kelly

    If you don’t know her personally, you don’t know her intentions. So don’t just assume that as if it’s a fact. And I doubt the sick children & their parents care about someone’s reason for donating the money going towards helping save their lives.

  • Jenna

    I know for a fact that she donates a LOT more than people know. A friend of mine works for a world-renowned hospital in Boston and she told me Taylor not only donates a great deal of money but donates her time. No one knows she visits the hospital regularly.
