Girl Surprised by Drake Thrives With New Heart
An 11-year-old girl spoke about two amazing things that happened to her. Within one week she experienced two huge miracles. One of those miracles saved her life, while the other had a huge impact on it. Sofia Sanchez experienced heart failure, and was waiting for a new heart when her music idol stopped by her hospital room. "It was a dream to me, but it happened, and I'm really happy because he's a really, really nice person, and he's a really good singer and rapper.” Drake posted photos with Sofia to his official Instagram page. He was in Chicago for a concert before stopping by. He was headed to his hometown, Toronto, for the next shows on his Aubrey & the Three Migos tour. The hospital posted a video of Sofia getting out of a wheelchair to dance to Drake songs on social media. In another video, Sofia directly addressed Drake, asking him to stop by the hospital and cheer her up. She mentioned that her birthday is on the same day as his Chicago performance. In the video, Sofia explains her ailment and then talks about the machine that helps her heart pump blood. The videos worked.
