In a kind and thoughtful gesture, Oprah gifted $250,000 to Kristian Anderson, a family man suffering from liver and bowel cancer.
Kristian came to Oprah’s attention when he created a lovely video for his wife, which featured Hugh Jackman. The couple, pictured on Oprah’s Australian Outback Adventure show yesterday, have been struggling with Kristian’s diagnosis for the past year. Rachel, Kristian’s wife had to return to a job as a high school teacher in order to support her husband and children.
Commenting on Rachel’s situation, Oprah said, “She is the main supporter of this family right now, we want them to spent every ounce of energy being together and focussed on getting well.”
Watch the touching video from Kristian to his wife after the jump.
