Little girl meets Drake, now gets second birthday wish: heart transplant

Little girl meets Drake, now gets second birthday wish: heart transplant

Late Sunday night, Sofia learned that her second wish would be granted: A new heart was ready for her.

For her 11th birthday, she hoped to have only two wishes come true: to meet Drake and get a new heart.

Sanchez had wanted to see the Canadian rapper perform live, but she was stuck in hospital, so she did the next best thing: uploaded a video of her doing the Kiki Challenge - a dance to Drake's hit In My Feelings that has gone viral around the globe - while accompanied by staff and attached to various machines.

Sofia said: "My birthday wish. did happen, well one of them did".

"I'm getting a heart mom, oh my god!"

Drake, who was in town for his concert at the United Center, shocked Sofia when he walked into her room at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago.

The young girl had been awaiting a new heart for eight weeks.

Brown says the heat, humidity and heavy rain we've gotten this summer is the cause for the increased risk. The symptoms may develop two to 15 days after being bitten by an infected mosquito.

Berger attributes Sofia's positivity to the support of her loved ones - but taking selfies with Drake probably didn't hurt, he said. "It happened today, you're getting a heart". "Oh my god!" as she is overcome with emotion. Her first dream came true when Grammy Award victor Drake visited her last week.

Mazal tov, Sofia! We wish you a quick recovery, a refuah shlema.

The news she would receive a transplant was revealed on her Instagram page.

"Yes please!" Sofia happily replies, jumping off her hospital bed to give him a huge embrace.

"She was very happy yet nervous, but nervousness is common", Berger said.

The hospital's video of the visit has gotten almost 200,000 views on Facebook. But the surprises for Sofia and her family didn't stop there, CBS Chicago reports.
