Tom Hanks meets Mia, a little girl fighting Neurofibromatosis
June 30, 2012
Tom Hanks and the crew working on the movie Captain Phillips took some time off from the set to meet Mia, a little girl who is fighting an incurable disease Neurofibromatosis, a genetic disorder of the nervous system which causes tumors to grow on a nerve anywhere in the body, at any time.
Mia was so funny and he was so nice. She said "You don't look like Woody". Tom grabbed her shoulder and said "Well, Mia. You got to close your eyes..." Then he started doing lines from Toy Story. It was great. :-)
