AGENCIES, Los Angeles: Friends actor Jennifer Aniston presented a coronavirus patient with a $10,000 gift card. The patient, named Kimball Fairbanks, is a nurse based in Utah who was working on the field to stop the crisis and ended up contracting it herself.
Jennifer appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! as a guest and surprised the nurse with the gift certificate from Postmates, according to Fox News.
Describing how she contracted the virus last week, Kimball said, “I kind of felt like I got hit by a train. But I think I just have really mild symptoms. I feel like I have a head cold combined with the flu. It feels decently manageable so that’s good.”
Jennifer praised the nurse’s courage to work taking risks and said, “I just have to say, God bless you and all of you that are out there doing what you’re doing. I just, I don’t even know how to express my gratitude to everything that you guys are doing, putting your health at risk and all of that. You’re just phenomenal.”
Kimball is restricted to home quarantine for two weeks, which means that she has to remain apart from her family, including her 4-year-old and 18-month-old daughters.
