What Mario Batali Did for Jim Gaffigan and His Wife Recovering from a Brain Tumor Will Have You in Tears

Normally, Jim Gaffigan has us in stitches. Today, we're grabbing the tissues.

Last night, the comedian took to his Instagram to write a heartfelt thank you to the famous chef Mario Batali for his generosity: Apparently, after the comedian's wife, Jeannie, was diagnosed with a brain tumor in April, Batali has been supporting the Gaffigan family with gourmet meals at home throughout her recovery. (Yeah, we warned you about the tissues.)

As if it couldn't get any more touching, Batali insisted that the couple dine at his Michelin-starred restaurant, Del Posto, for their 14th wedding anniversary. He even created a custom menu with Jeannie's health needs in mind.

We think the Italian chef's show of compassion is pretty darn wonderful.
