Jennifer Aniston made a special friend on her trip to Oregon this month. Unlike the romance reports from the tabloids, this story is a heartwarming one from the west coast.
According to a report, Jennifer Aniston’s maternal instincts went into overdrive recently when she learned handicapped young fan wanted to meet her.
The â€œBreak-upâ€ actress has been on location in the small town of Madras, Oregon, filming the romantic comedy for the past several weeks. The actress was in her trailer prepping for a scene when she heard that Isaiah Beeson â€“ an 8-year-old with a debilitating bone disease that confines him to a wheelchair â€“ wanted to say hello.
Danny Beeson, the childâ€™s grandfather, revealed, “Jennifer made arrangements for Isaiah to be brought on-set immediately. It was second nature to her to want to make his day, and it was a dream come true for the little guy. Isaiahâ€™s only eight, but he knows and loves Jennifer from watching â€˜Friendsâ€™ repeats with his mom. Heâ€™ll never forget how Jennifer made time for him.â€
According to the childâ€™s grandfather, Isaiah suffers form osteogenesis imperfecta, a genetic disorder characterized by bones that break easily. It is often referred to as â€œbrittle bone diseaseâ€, saying, â€œHis bones are so weak that one hard sneeze could cause a break. Heâ€™s broken one leg six times and he just recently got out of a cast. But Jennifer giving him attention really raised his spirits.â€
The grandfather also revealed that the actress autographed a picture for the young boy and showed genuine concern about his illness, adding, â€œIsaiah was thrilled about his meeting with Jennifer. He kept saying what a â€˜super nice ladyâ€™ she was after he left the set.â€
