Drake Gives A Brain Cancer-Stricken Fan A Huge Surprise

There was nothing more blissful for brain cancer victim, Kennedy Brown than to have her idol Drake by her side this weekend!

Just like Cash Money star Nicki Minaj, rapper Drake was all about paying a surprise visit this weekend to his die heart fan, Kennedy Brown who was diagnosed with brain cancer two years ago in Houston.

15 year old Kennedy has been battling brain cancer since 2012 and when faced with the fear of death in just a few weeks, her college mates arranged for her to get the full high school experience by throwing her a surprise prom and then crowning her prom queen.

But that wasn't all; they were bent on giving Kennedy her dying wish – meeting Drake! So last week, a social media campaign was launched to get the rapper’s attention with the hashtag #DrakeForKen. A student wrote to Drake:

Hi. I am a student at Carnegie Vanguard High School in Houston, Texas. A friend of mine has a serious case of terminal brain cancer that she has been battling for a year and a half now.  Just recently, she has gotten much worse.  On Monday, we will be celebrating her life, and because she is only a freshman, we will be giving her the entire high school experience in one day (prom, graduation, etc.)  She is your biggest fan, and it would mean so much to her if you could come meet her or at least send something.  We aren’t sure how much time she has left; she has been in hospice and is immobilized.  Please help! It would mean the world to her and all of us. Thank you #Drakeforken

Reports say just a day or so after the campaign was launched to get Drake's attention, an update was given that he had gotten the message and was in the process of recording a message for her. Well, last Saturday, Drake flew himself out to Houston to meet Kennedy and as they say, the rest is history. Take a look at the photos.
