Jimmy Kimmel Reveals Details of His Son’s Birth & Heart Disease

  • Who in the world would dislike this video it's a true story and nobody would never want to see this happen to his children. I am happy for you Jimmy that you're son is well and that nobody would ever get to experience such a thing.

  • True freedom is the right to not have to worry about how the bill is fixed up after a emergency healthcare for all.

  • My Canadian health care story:

    I got sick in late 2010, called an ambulance, was diagnosed with diabetes type 2, spent the last part of December and the first half of January in hospital. Got well, left and went home. Other than the $45.00 CDN for the ambulance, I paid nothing for my health care. Even with recent cutbacks to healthcare here in Ontario, I wouldn't trade our health care system for what the U.S. has.

    Try to work towards eventually getting our our type of health care, people of the United States. You all know what to do next year, do it.

  • The same people who wanted to go on w the cut are the same people who claim they’re “Pro life”…pathetic

  • I doubt you’ll see this, but if you do, please have your son checked for 22q11.2 deletion syndrome. TOF is the most common birth defect with this condition, affecting up to 76% of those born with 22q.

  • That's the exact reason why I've always wanted to become a doctor…..
    Btw 11k dislikes???guys….Do you just open a video to dislike it and not even see it?? Not even satan would dislike this….That's just cruel…

  • Wow….
    11.197 people disliked this personal story….What the hell is wrong with you guys? You should be ashamed!!

  • Damn I was supposing to watch a comedy clip now I’m crying like a waterfall…
    My friend lost her twin sister at birth due to the same problem, and she’s been living her life with similar issue, and a fractured soul. Her expected life span is not long, even though she smiles all the time but when she asks me “u think I’m gonna die soon?”… sigh idk.
    Just hoping none of this crap would ever happen again in this world.

  • I love how Jimmy expresses his emotions in such a real way, it takes a real man to show that kind of vulnerability. Love you Jimmy <3

  • The little bastard should've died. Nobody needs another Kimmel around. Hopefully both of your kids are dead before adulthood.

  • I have never seen Jimmy Kimmel cry. EVER. Until I saw this and I'm a grown man in my 40's and crying with him even though this is couple years old. Glad that his kid and I share the same nickname which is Billy and glad he survived his ordeal. I nearly died as an infant myself as I've heard the stories from my mother the end result for me is I ended up having cerebral palsy but I'm alive and grateful for each day God has given and blessed me with. From one Billy to another keep on living life kid. You're gonna be just as great as your Dad.

  • I love how Jimmy can turn something so emotional into something hilarious when he said you didn't just get a bad heart you got my face 😂

  • "Let's stop with the nonsense. This isn't football. There are no teams. We are the team. It's the United States. Don't let their partisan squabbles divide us on something every decent person wants. We need to take care of eachother." – Jimmy Kimmel

  • Natural selection is a real thing I bet that little guy just got a peanut allergy as well and need special lunches on first class airplanes

  • Aww, I’ve never seen this side of him. ❤️ He’s so sweet about it and still funny.

    “I’ll never be able to thank him . . .”

    “So I won’t even try!”

    😭😹

  • A professional host and a great father! God bless you more! and may God forgive those who disliked this video, for they just don't get the sense of this…

  • No parent should have to decide if they can affort to save their child's life. I am not an american but I agree with that. No parent should watch their kid die. Period!

  • When I first heard about this I thought it was super serious. It is but more common than one would think. They can still live very normal lives these patients, but it is a cyanosis disorder. Good job to the nurses

  • I always give amazing advice # humblebrag. Part of the reason why jimmys kid was treated so well was because of his money and status. He was at cedars Sinai. Aaaaaaaaaaall the hospital staff knew he was there.

    In this country sad to say that matters. It shouldn’t. But I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. You have to fight to live in the hospital system. Sooooooooooo many people fall through the cracks. Come in with minor infections tank contract hospital infections and die.

    If your family member is in the hospital for an extended period of time. Be engaged. Know when their labs were done when they’ll be discharged. Make sure the staff knows someone’s checking on them or else…. they’ll fall through if your not at a Mayo Clinic or Cleveland clinic.

    Its unfair I know.

  • You know what I've noticed? Nobody panics when things go "according to plan". Even if the plan is horrifying. If, tomorrow, I tell the press that, like, a cow will get shot, or a truckload of chickens will be blown up, nobody panics, because it's all "part of the plan". But when I say that one little old lion will die, well then everyone loses their minds!

  • In Australia we have free healthcare and I thank god for it every day. We don't have to decide to feed our kids or save our children. I have the same right and access to medical care as a millionaire…it blows my mind some Americans think their system "works"…it works for the rich…that's ONLY who it works for.

  • Jimmy I was born with tetralogy of fallot as well, I’m 26 years old and still go to my yearly checkups at children’s hospital. I’m probably the oldest patient there to be honest lol. It’s such a rare condition that no one really knows about. Minus the surgeries, I’m still able to live a normal life. God Bless.

  • If you dislike, your profile should be available to show you truly brave unfaced trolls.

  • I can't believe 11k people have disliked it ! Heartless disgusting people from hell.. like honestly why would you do it 😑😑

  • That's exactly what happens in my country, Chile, IF YOU DON'T HAVE MONEY, YOU LITERALLY DIE!!… Am so glad his baby is fine!!

  • It all staring getting political in the last 3 minutes to some ppl (it wasn’t even that political) . So 11k dislikes are probably from those last minutes, imagine that. It’s disgusting how ppl disagree when you wish the best for other ppls children.

  • I hope this is Jimmy Kimble thanks that you liked my reply both you and Ellen are just right your way worth watching I was just today that was good with twitch he's good everyday cuz he's hanging with Ellen we all can hang together I mean I do cuz I watch you guys everyday thanks for noticing my words and it's wonderful you are crazy happy-go-lucky still I watch both of you this is w Molina

  • I have not been emotional for a long time, but you've me made cry Jimmy. Thank you for being so brave and honest! God bless you and your family!

  • Wow! You had an amazing nurse. As a nurse and nurse practitioner, we are are the front line. We have something called “nurse’s intuition”, which guides us to find subtle abnormalities. For her to catch TOF (tetralogy of Fallot) so quickly is truly talented and highly skilled. We are sadly underpaid and overworked in comparison to the level of care we provide. I continued on to nurse practitioner so I could continue honing my skills. I have saved many lives, and I have to tell you, it’s the most amazingly fulfilling feeling. It makes those stressful days of “Where’s the Doctor? I want to see a doctor!”, drug seekers and the massive amounts of documentation and hoop jumping seem infinitely minuscule. We take our work everywhere as well, and can’t help but diagnose anyone we see out in public. I am so glad his TOF was found and surgically corrected so quickly!

  • Aye pulmonary atresia gang🙌🏻

    I had my first open heart when I was born and my second when I was 2, my third when I was 7 and luckily my latest surgery (when I was 13) wasn’t an open heart and they were able to go through my arteries in my legs🥳 hopefully i won’t have to get another until I’m 18🙌🏻

  • I was pregnant the same time molly was, I had my son in October of 2017. He was born with a blockage in his intestines that required surgery right after birth. It’s called duodenal atresia. My baby was in the nicu for 2 months. The worst and most emotional time in my life, but now he is a healthy toddler.
    Happy endings.

  • It's send a Prayer, not send a prayer or "fill in the blank".. I dont understand why people say or anything. It's okay to say send a prayer. Your thoughts ain't gonna help anything

  • Was very fortunate to have catheter surgery to repair Atrial Septal Defect and, living in Canada, I can't even think of the idea of paying a hefty fee to save your life. I understand private medical insurance in the US can cover medical expenses in part or in full, but for corporations having the final say if they can save your life or financially ruin you forever, it's beyond common sense.

    Difference between US hospitals vs Canadian hospitals: treating clients vs treating patients. If money is more important than your life, think about where the efforts are being put in your health care system. Not saying Canadian heath care is perfect by all means, it's accessible, it isn't "free", you wait sometimes longer. But like he said: no parent should decide if they can afford to save their child's life. Hope your son is doing well Jimmy Kimmel!

  • This is the reason you are my favorite late night show. Everything about u is real. It takes guts too go on TV and talk about something as touching as this. You are humble, respectful and a great human being. I hope all is well with Billy going forward. Love and respect from me too u and your family Jimmy. God bless

  • During the video, I cried the whole time… My daughter was born with the same condition, and when I saw the picture of his son with all the cables and tubes, and everything… This is just the worst thing a parent could go through. My girl had the surgery when was she was close to 6 months of age, and while watching I remembered the look in her eyes, while we were going to the theatre for the surgery….. Jesus, I mean still tears are running down my eyes, regardless of where in the world, no parent should go through seeing their child's eyes asking "Why are you letting me go with them?"….. I cannot properly describe what goes on at such moment. I feel you, Jimmy

  • I worked there in that unit right out if nursing school, 1975. As well as Cedars Sinai. It was incredible, and many of my friends children have been treated there. Decades later my own grandchild would pass away at 2 years old with Neuroblastoma. Gods blessings to you and your family.

  • If your son was on the socialist healthcare the democrats are pushing, you wouldn’t be standing up that talking about it…..it takes years to get simple operations under socialist healthcare… that’s a fact

  • Who mf-ing disliked this video ? 🥺🤔 probably got the like button confused with the dislike button while crying
