Drake Surprises Heart Transplant Patient In Hospital!
Unless you’ve been living under a rock recently then you’ll know about the Kiki challenge which sees people uploading videos of themselves dancing to rapper Drake’s hit Kiki Do You Love Me.
One such fan is Sofia Sanchez who’s currently in hospital waiting for a heart transplant. The fiesty 11 year old didn’t let her condition stop her from taking part in her favourite rapper’s challenge. Watch!
After recording her own take of the viral “In my feelings” challenge little Sofia uploaded it to Youtube which is where it caught the rapper’s attention.
Sofia swapped the car for her hospital wheelchair and Drake saw it during his tour in Chicago and decided he had to go surprise the youngster!
She screamed ‘Oh my God!’ as he entered to which Drake casually responded: “You asked me to come, I’m here”.
The he asked: “You wanna give me a hug or what?” Which saw Sofia jump ecstatically off the bed. “I’m so happy I got to see you,” he told his young fan, to which Sofia responded: “I’m so happy you came.”
The two spent time talking and taking selfies as well as exchanging autographs. Drake made sure he had Sofia’s autograph before giving her his! So sweet.
Young Sofia was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy, a heart muscle condition that can make it hard for the heart to deliver blood to the body and potentially lead to heart failure.
A heart transplant is often needed to survive, and Sofia is currently on the waiting list.
Sofia’s cardiologist, Dr Bradley Marino, said: “Having this one special day where she doesn’t have to be a sick patient and doesn’t have to be a girl waiting for a heart, it’s just a little girl who’s a fan of a great artist, it’s pretty special.”
We wish Sofia a speedy recovery and all the best with her heart transplant surgery which we pray will happen very soon!
