Jennifer Lopez Reveals Daughter's Medical Scare
Los Angeles (E! Online) – Jennifer Lopez will never forget the night she and husband Marc Anthony discovered a lump on daughter Emme's head. Emme and twin brother Max were only three weeks old at the time.
"We both got very nervous, very very nervous, and I just remember my heart sinking to my feet," Lopez recalled at last night's Noche de Ninos gala benefit for Childrens Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA). "I looked at [Marc] and I said, 'You know if anything happens, I'm not going to be okay, you know that right?'"
Lopez and Anthony rushed Emme to Children's Hospital, where she underwent a battery of tests, including an MRI. "Luckily in the end," Lopez said, "she turned out fine."
But it turned into something more for the hospital...
Shortly after the scare, the singer-actress joined forces with CHLA to form the Maribel Foundation to help provide pediatric medical services to the less fortunate.
"I started to wonder," Lopez said, "what if I couldn't afford a doctor, or receive the medicines, the procedures?"
Lopez also debuted a new song last night, which she wrote for her twins. A recording of the ballad was played during a video highlighting the Foundation's work. In it, Lopez sings, "Let's keep this time for us and make it last as long as we can. It's already going too fast."Meanwhile, Jamie Lee Curtis, who was given this year's Courage to Care Award by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, sported a pink wig.
No, she wasn't getting all Britney Spears on us.
The wig belonged to a 15-year-old girl who died of cancer.
"We were at a news conference and she pulled off this wig and on her head she had written 'Jamie Lee Curtis Rocks,'" the actress told me about her first meeting the girl when she was 11. "That night I borrowed her wig and went to this event, where we raised millions of dollars for Childrens Hospital Pittsburgh. After she died, I asked her mother if I could have her wig to carry her message."source glad her bb was ok!!! & JLC is a sweet heart.
