Washington Wizards Basketball Player John Wall teamed up with Nicki Minaj to grant the wish of one very courageous five-year-old.

Wall posted a video to his Instagram on March 7 with a little girl named Miyah, who is diagnosed with Stage 3B Burkitts Lymphoma.

Using the power of social media, he reached out to Minaj in the comments, saying, “@NickiMinaj #HelpMiyahMeetNicki #PinkWig4Miyah Fans I need your help to get my buddy Miyah’s wish granted. She’s a 5 year old battling cancer and her wish is to meet @NickiMinaj and get one of her pink wigs! I need your help, comment on this photo “@NickiMinaj #HelpMiyahMeetNicki #PinkWig4Miyah”! Let’s get Miyah’s one of Nicki’s pink wigs!”

The “Super Bass” singer replied an hour later saying, “Hi Miyah!!! Let’s see what we can come up with for a pretty little princess.”

They met on Sunday and John Wall documented the experience, saying,”My Buddy Miyah and her mom on a secret mission today, stay tuned… #OperationMeetNickiunderway #PinkWig4Miyah”, after posting a picture of Miyah and her mother on the train.

Once Minaj met the five-year-old, she posted a slew of pictures online:
