Drake Surprises Little Girl Awaiting Heart Transplant at Hospital
The rapper visited the girl after she posted a video of herself doing the "Shiggy Challenge."
Drake made a little girl's dreams come true with a surprise hospital visit.
Sofia Sanchez is awaiting a heart transplant and gathered up the strength to recently do the “Shiggy Challenge," based off Drake’s single, “In My Feelings.”
She has been diagnosed with cardiomyopathy, a condition that often leads to heart failure. Three weeks ago, she received open-heart surgery, and while she was recovering, she decided to do the dance.
After she did the viral dance, the girl asked the Canadian musician to visit her on her 11th birthday.
“I was hoping you could come and cheer me up,” she said.
The superstar granted her wish at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital in Chicago Monday. There, they took photos and exchanged autographs.
Sanchez told Inside Edition that she "thought it was a dream" when Drake came into the room.
She added that “I didn’t think [he would come]” and it made her feel “good” that he came.
He gave her a hat and shirt, as well as inviting her to a concert, and she said that he was in her room for an hour.
Sanchez is still grateful the "God's Plan" singer came to visit her, saying: "I will always picture you sitting here and talking to me."
The hospital posted video of their touching meeting.
