Jamie Lee Curtis on Her Fight to Help Children in Need: ‘There’s Nothing More Powerless Than a Sick Kid’

Jamie Lee Curtis' life was forever changed in 1983 after she met a 12-year-old girl named Lori Tull. The actress, 62, was filming a movie in Pontiac, Ill. and attended a fundraiser the town was throwing for Tull, who had one of the first successful heart transplants.

"She and I became friends, and she visited me when I was making another movie, in Pittsburgh," explains Curtis.

Unfortunately, Tull died when she was 20. At the time, Curtis asked Sony to donate VCRs to Children's Hospital Pittsburg so the patients could watch movies and she donated a movie library in Tull's name.

When she returned home, Curtis knew she wanted to do more to help kids in need.
