This Video Of A Little Girl Visited By Her Idol Drake While Waiting For A New Heart Is Going Viral

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.

Dating and the search for love and companionship... What a nightmare.

This journey plays out nothing like in the movies.

Every Prince or Princess (or everything in BTW) seems to have a touch of the psycho.

The things people say during what should be simple dinner conversation can leave a dining partner aghast.

Like... do you hear you?

"You're on a date and it's going really great. What can another person say to ruin it completely?"

Children tend to believe just about anything they hear.

That there are monsters under your bed, watching too much TV will make your head explode, and silly faces will be permanent if you make them too often.

The sky is truly the limit when it comes to silly things that children will believe.

Some call it naivitée, other's youthful innocence.

But it's hard not to look back with embarrassment on certain things we believed as a child, that today might simply seem dumb.

Redditor Disastrous_Toe_6548 was curious to learn the multitude of silly things people believed when they were children, leading them to ask:

"What's the dumbest thing you believed as a kid?"
