Celebs Rally Around 'Sex and the City 2' Costumer's Sick Baby

Nine-month-old Brooklyn baby "Minty Python" has been battling brain tumors since she was just 6 weeks old. And celeb parents like Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, Kristin Davis, Zach Galifianakis, Jason Schwartzman, Naomi Watts, Ted Danson, Tina Fey and Rachel Weisz are rallying to help offset the extensive cost of her cancer treatment.

"She was diagnosed with anaplastic ependymoma when she was 6 weeks old back in August of 2009," says Mei-Lai Hippisley-Coxe, Minty's mother, in a NY1 post.

Already, little Minty has proven herself to be the trooper of all troopers: She has undergone four surgeries in an 11-day stretch and has endured six rounds of high-dose chemotherapy.

Says Mei-Lai, "The doses are very high and quite toxic in adults, but they seem to think that children and babies can handle higher doses of chemo. So the hope was that would work for Minty, but we did five or six rounds and then an MRI showed several tumors had grown."

Mei-Lai has had to pause her showbiz wardrobe career (among her gigs, "Sex and the City 2") to care for her daughter. Now in the midst of a new experimental protocol to shrink Minty's tumors, she's facing the demise of her union insurance at the end of the year.

To help offset the impending financial implications, Mei-Lai's actor buds are stepping up to help Minty (and two organizations that help kids in need) by participating in a star-studded benefit on May 1st. Among the celebs on tap? Naomi Watts, Ted Danson, Tina Fey and Rachel Weisz.

What cased such a thing?? This is sad…what was the mother consuming during her pregnancy? Seriously what could cause cancer of any kind before age 40 is bewildering. They say environment is the key factor which includes whatever you’ve been exposed to. I would like more info please.

Wow, I would think that between all of these celebs, they should be able to cover all of her medical expenses.

I can’t believe that the first thing you did was blame this poor mother. It could be genetic, it could be caused by almost anything. If it is environmental I would think that it was something the mother was unknowingly exposed, not something she purposely introduce into her body.

Danielle….WHAT!!!!!….to say it’s the mothers fault is just wrong.I’ve been sick since the age of 23 {I’m now 34} are you going to say that it’s my mothers fault get a clue and do your research!!!!!!

I’m assuming Danielle doesn’t have children. That was just a crazy post. I have an autoimmune disorder. It’s likely genetic. It’s also UNlikely that my mother DID something to cause it. It’s FAR more likely that she (or I as an infant) was unwittingly exposed to an environmental factor that triggered an already existing predisposition. No one is to blame (except maybe the corporations that willingly pollute our environment). To blame such a thing on the mother is insensitive at best. FYI Danielle - the mother only contributes 50% of a child’s DNA. There IS another parent’s genetic material involved. Just sayin’…

Sarah Jessica Parker looked great in her Alexander McQueen black strapless dress and Philip Treacy hat at the UK premiere of Sex And The City 2 in London’s Leicester Square. The movie reviews might not be brilliant but the girls brought out the crowds in London!
