Jimmy Kimmel is bringing joy to deserving people even while stuck at home.
On Thursday's Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the host was joined by guest Jennifer Aniston via video chat, and after the pair chatted and caught up, he and Aniston teamed up to give one special nurse a big surprise.
Kimball Fairbanks, a cardiovascular nurse from St. George, Utah, has been on the front lines during the growing coronavirus outbreak, and on Monday she revealed that she's tested positive for COVID-19, and was now in quarantine.
Fairbanks joined Fallon remotely and chatted with Kimmel about how she's doing days after diagnosis and Kimmel had a special treat to potentially raise her spirits.
"We wanted to cheer you up a little bit. So I'd like you to meet somebody. Her name is Jennifer," Kimmel said, as Aniston popped up on split-screen, stunning Fairbanks into shocked, overjoyed silence.
"Hi, honey, it's so good to meet you," Aniston 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."
"Well, thank you. I really appreciate that," Fairbanks said, beaming.
Aniston was moved by her story -- including how, due to her illness, Fairbanks has been furloughed from work at the hospital. She also has to be apart from her family for two weeks, including her 4-year-old and 18-month-old kids.
