But a visit to the sick patients is not the “Hunger Games” star has done for the hospital. In 2016, Lawrence donated $2 million for the making of the Jennifer Lawrence Foundation Cardiac Intensive Care unit at Norton Children’s Hospital. The unit provides a place for families to stay after their children receive a heart transplant or have had open-heart surgery.

“My family and I have met so many beautiful children on our visits to the hospital. Their courage and strength is inspiring,” Lawrence said in a press release at the time. “I challenge everyone to give what they can to make an extra $2 million to help.”
