There have been numerous stars who’ve gone out of their way to grant wishes for their young and sick fans, from visiting children’s hospitals to arranging private one-on-one meetings. These stories are sure to melt your heart.
When 13-year-old Victoria heard that the Make-A-Wish Foundation was going to grant her wish of meeting her idol, Australian pop star Cody Simpson, she was beyond ecstatic. The teen, who was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma, was flown out to a concert venue and escorted to a green room that was stocked with special gifts and Victoria’s favorite snacks. Cody then entered the room, holding a dozen roses. They chatted for a bit, and she had an opportunity to ask him whatever she wanted before he left to perform. During the show, he announced Victoria as his special guest, brought her on stage and serenaded her with his song, “Angel.”
