In March 2016, Jennifer Garner was hot on the promotional trail for her Christian drama film “Miracles from Heaven,” which had been released a few days earlier. While set in Texas, the movie was filmed in and around Atlanta, Georgia.

Is “Miracles From Heaven” based on a true story?

Yes, the movie is based on “Miracles from Heaven: A Little Girl, Her Journey to Heaven, and Her Amazing Story of Healing,” a memoir written by an American author Christy Beam. Available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble, it was released on April 14, 2015.

What disease did Annabel Beam have?

The author’s 10-year-old daughter was diagnosed with a rare terminal stomach disorder. It’s a rare and incurable syndrome that makes it impossible for the body to process food efficiently.

“She was on 10 medications a day … she just lived on the sofa in the fetal position with a heating pad on her stomach,” recalled Christy Beam, while visiting TODAY to tell Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford their dramatic real-life story. “That was her life.”

Jennifer appeared to be in good spirits as she headed to “The Tonight Show,” where she promoted her new film and talked about her Academy Awards Versace gown, which caused her ribs to “panic.”

“We’re sitting there, and suddenly my ribs started to like panic… I had a panic attack in my ribs,” she told Jimmy. “They were spasming, I was having a muscle spasm. Everything started to freak out.”
