What divorce drama?

Jennifer Garner's divorce from Ben Affleck has been making headlines, but on Sunday the 43-year-old actress gave media outlets another reason to talk about her.

Garner, who is filming "Miracles From Heaven" in Atlanta, provided her own little miracle by visiting Henry Shepherd, a 9-year-old boy battling Osteosarcoma cancer.

Henry was receiving his chemotherapy treatment at Scottish Rite hospital in Atlanta when Garner and her co-star, Kylie Rogers, popped in to give him a bit of good cheer. Garner was all smiles as she posed alongside Henry and snapped a couple of photos. According to Fox News Atlanta, Garner and her co-star chatted with Henry and his twin sister for about ten minutes before visiting with other children in the hospital.



According to Fox News, Henry has been battling cancer since December 2014 and has undergone 17 aggressive treatments, including a treatment in March that required him to have his foot removed and rotated 180 degrees and then reattached to his leg.

The brunette beauty is reportedly one of Henry's favorite stars, making her visit extra special.

Garner's upcoming flick, which is based on the book Three Miracles From Heaven, is is about a young girl suffering from a rare digestive disorder.
