Supermodel Gisele Bundchen surprised a group of young cancer patients at the Jimmy Fund Clinic at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston during the weekend by giving them a special modeling class.
Gisele gave the 29 young girls lessons in catwalk etiquette, and they were also treated to manicures, pedicures, make-up and hair styling as part of their special day out, organized by local sports broadcaster John Dennis. The local sports host approached the supermodel through her husband, New England Patriots star Tom Brady.
“It was the most amazing, wonderful, wonderful thing I’ve ever seen,” Dennis told the Boston Herald. “It was unbelievable. She made every one of those girls feel beautiful, loved and important. It was very, very special.”
He went on to explain just how emotional the event was to Bundchen: “Her face was turned away from the kids and she started crying uncontrollably. The tears were streaming down her face. She was emotionally drained. She said ‘I love all of you,’ and got in the elevator before they could see her face. It was unbelievable.”
The Jimmy Fund supports the fight against cancer at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, helping to raise the chances of survival for children and adults with cancer around the world.
