At 15-years-old, most girls are worried about attending prom or studying for finals. Kennedy Brown worries about medications and how much life she has left in her battle with brain cancer. Even in the midst of treatment, Kennedy has only had one wish: to meet Drake.
After Twitter campaign #DrakeForKen went viral, Kennedy’s father received a surprising call from Drake, who immediately hopped a plane to Houston, Texas.
Days earlier, a local news channel shared a story about Kennedy, when her school threw her a “high school in a day” party. The festivities included a mock prom, crowing as prom queen and private graduation ceremony. During the telecast, her friends urged viewers to tweet the hashtag and it immediately took off.
Grabbing the attention of Drake himself, he planned a trip especially for Kennedy in Houston.
While there, Drake met with Kennedy, her friends, family and took a large amount of pictures and videos. Even Drake shared a few gems on his Instagram.
“Me and this beautiful angel Kennedy #kenfordrake,” he posted.
She even asked to touch his eyebrows, which he willingly obliged. “#accessgranted,” he posted.
Friends and family saw Kennedy light up from the get-go; a welcome change from the stresses of difficult brain cancer.
Kennedy is currently in hospice care in Texas.
