Celebs like Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, and Ryan Reynolds have all cheered up sick kids by dropping by hospitals and hanging out with the young patients. Sometimes stars find themselves in a situation where they are able to help in an emergency, such as Jennifer Lawrence tending to a girl who fainted, or Ryan Gosling saving a woman's life in New York.
