Sofia Sanchez is an 11-year-old girl who had two wishes.

As a patient on a weeks-long list for a heart transplant at the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago, her first wish was for a new heart.

Her second wish? She wanted Drake to come by and visit her in the hospital on her birthday.


According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Sanchez had undergone open-heart surgery three weeks ago after being diagnosed with cardiomyopathy, a progressive heart disease in which the muscle becomes abnormally enlarged or stiffened and causes eventual heart failure.

The young patient knew her favorite rapper was in town, and she reached out to him in a YouTube clip.

My birthday's this weekend, this Saturday, which your concert is this Saturday, and I love your music.
I was hoping that you could come and cheer me up for my birthday or anytime this week.


In a separate video, Sanchez demonstrated just how devoted a fan she is by participating in the viral Kiki challenge in which fans dance along to "In My Feelings."

Here she is exuberantly getting up out of her wheel chair to demonstrate her moves while still attached to her IV.



On Monday, Sanchez's 11th birthday, Drake made a very special visit during his back-to-back shows on Friday and Saturday in Chicago for his "Aubrey & The Three Migos Tour."

Here is a clip of the magical moment the birthday girl got to meet her idol.





She was over the moon.

Drake documented the visit on his Instagram and wrote, "Me and my love Sofia talking about Bieber and Owls and Basketball."


The birthday girl even got a "Scorpion" hat, named after the rapper's latest album.

The concert in Toronto was unexpectedly cancelled. A Live Nation rep said, "Due to circumstances beyond our control, the Aubrey & the Three Migos tour date in Toronto originally scheduled for August 20th is being postponed."

Tickets will be honored for the new date when announced.



Lurie's Children's Hospital shared the exciting birthday news.

Here's to a happy birthday, and a healthy new heart soon.

We aren't perfect. There's plenty of things in our pasts that we look back and cringe at.

That being said, sometimes those cringe moments go far past cringe. Sometimes they get to the point of no return awfulness because that's where our human nature took us in this moment.

I don't miss high school or the people in it. People who seem to have peaked in high school also weird me out. How? Why? I can definitely tell you that life got much more interesting the older I got (my 20s were way more fun than any of my time in high school). If you were to ask me if I have any regrets, I suppose I would say that I wish I had been more assertive and stood up for myself more. Depression has a way of complicating goals like that, though. Let me tell you: It feels nice to be so much healthier than I was then.

When we are on the outside looking in, it can feel so obvious that a relationship is doomed.

When we offer advice to friends, family, or people oversharing at a party, the correct next move often seems wildly obvious: get out of that relationship.

Some people don't take breakups very well. And those that don't can sometimes engage in behavior that others might view as bothersome, unsettling, even toxic.

Others engage in abusive behavior during the relationship, a major red flag that some people might not take seriously until it's too late.
