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.

I have a paralyzing fear of death. If I could I would live forever. Have you ever seen the movie "Death Becomes Her?" I would give every penny for that potion. And I wouldn't be all crazy like them.

Live well forever and be happy? It's possible. Even though life is nuts and scary, you're still here. What if there is nothing after the final breath? I don't want to just not exist, while everybody else just gets to keep on dancing.

In my hopes I see a Heaven with ice cream and vodka. So I'm going to hold onto that until eternal life is an option. Let's hear from the gallery...
