Drake Pays Surprise Birthday Visit To Heart Transplant Patient Who Did Kiki Challenge

Drake paid a surprise birthday pop in at the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago, for a special little girl called Sofia Sanchez, who is awaiting a heart transplant. This was after the eleven year old captured the rapper’s attention with her own rendition of the Kiki Challenge– the craze that incorporates a choreographed dance to Drake’s recent hit song, “In My Feelings.”

The sweet moment was captured in a video clip shared to the hospital’s official Facebook page. Sofia who had no idea that Drake was actually going to make her wish come true screamed, Oh my God!” with a shocked face as Drake pulled back the curtain and walked into her hospital room.

In a video posted last week, Sofia whose birthday was on Saturday, had said, “I hope you can come and see me at the Lurie Children’s hospital, because I love your music and you’re awesome.

“Your concert is this Saturday at the United Center and I want to go but I can’t cause I’m stuck here so I want you to come and cheer me up for my birthday.” She added.

Sofia has been in the hospital for 7 weeks  and was recently diagnosed with cardiomyopathy. In fact, just a day before she had open heart surgery to have a ventricular assistance device installed, Sofia recorded her Kiki Challenge in hopes of getting Drake’s attention.

Dr. Bradley Marino, a pediatric cardiologist treating Sofia at the Ann & Robert H. Lurie children’s hospital, explained that she is still waiting for a heart, but the surprise visit allowed her to take her mind off of her health crisis. “She came in with heart failure. She was so ill. And 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, and is just a little girl who is a fan of a great artist? It’s pretty special.”

“It’s a miracle because it’s one of the first wishes I got in a long time,” Sofia said. “Thank you so much Drake for coming to see me. It means a lot for you to come and cheer me up.” She added.

Fedex Driver Shovels Snow Off Woman’s Porch When He Learns Her Husband Recently Died

Published

Leigh Anne’s husband had just passed away after fighting cancer for seven months at the age of 42. This left her with three young children to raise on her own as a single mother and widow.

In the middle of winter, after a pretty nasty snowstorm, the cold had deflated her tyres. Leigh Anne tried putting air back in her tires but found it too hard to remove the cap on her tyres, meaning she could not be able to refill them. Luckily she noticed Brian making a nearby call.

Brian is a friendly local delivery driver with FedEx who she had seen around her neighborhood and had even delivered a few packages to Leigh Anne a couple of times before.

Brian was happy and kind enough to help out with her tyres. As the two were chatting, Brian got to learn of Leigh Anne’s heartbroken state and her husband’s recent death.

Brian knew he had to do something to help her out. There was enough pain and stress in her life already, and there was just a small something he could do to make things a little better for her.

After helping Leigh Anne fix her car tyres and helping her back into her house, the FedEx driver quickly grabbed a shovel and got to work. He had noticed all the snow covering her porch and decided to help.

The doorbell camera captured Brian’s act of kindness, as he shovelled the snow off Leigh Anne’s porch and pathway to help her out. “Doorbell cameras don’t only catch people stealing packages,” Leigh Anne wrote on Facebook.

Brian’s kindness and thoughtfulness melted the hearts of thousands who saw the footage after it was shared on social media. God bless this man.

An elderly Kansas woman says it’s a miracle that she and her husband are alive after a bullet was fired into her home, all thanks to a framed photo of the Lord’s Prayer that saved them both.

Constance Effie said she had just sat down to watch some television in the living room of her Kansas City home when she heard an explosion-like sound. Her husband was also home at the time.

“All of a sudden ‘boom.’ I thought I was in a war zone because that was the loudest noise I ever heard,” Effie told WDAF.

The seventy year old woman said she then realized that someone had opened fire outside, leading to one of the bullets flying into her house. But instead of hitting her, the bullet hit a framed photo of the Lord’s Prayer that was hanging only two feet above her head.

“We looked all around and didn’t see a hole anywhere. I thought, ‘Look, that picture, the glass is all broken,'” she said. “It hit [the picture] and fell down behind [the couch]. But if it didn’t have the metal, it probably would’ve come on in and hit one of us.”

Effie believes God blocked the bullet from hurting them. She said the next day she had to be taken to the hospital where doctors told her that she had suffered a minor heart attack because of the scary ordeal.

“I was afraid after the near-death incident. I kept thinking I don’t want any more shooting,” Effie said, adding she constantly hears gunshots in her neighborhood. “The doctors said it looked like it was a stress heart attack but that it was a small one.”

“We’re lucky to be alive, and we’re happy,” Effie said. “We just hope and pray they understand not to do this anymore.”

Kansas City police are still investigating the shooting and have not identified the suspects yet.
