I love Michael Jackson

Michael’s Love: August 8, 1994

On August 8, 1994, Michael Jackson and his bride, Lisa Marie Presley, met a four year-old boy during a visit to the Bethesda Children`s Hospital when Michael was in Budapest, Hungary shooting a music video.

Doctors at the hospital told them that Bella Farkas`s mother had abandoned him and that his father rarely visited him. MJ and Lisa Marie spent several hours visiting with him. Bela was diagnosed with a congenital liver disease that discolored his skin and prevented him from digesting food. Without a transplant, doctors gave him one year to live. Bela`s transplant was to take place at a Western hospital, as those in Hungary did not have the necessary equipment for the transplant. The estimated cost for the transplant was $120, 000.

Michael pledged funds from Heal the World, the charitable foundation he created in 1992 to cover all expenses related to Bela`s transplant.
