Illinois Girl Who Drake Visited Gets A New Heart

Get the tissue ready for this one.

The little girl from a Chicago suburb who asked Drake to come visit her in the hospital not only got her wish to see the rapper, but she also received a new heart, something she needed more than anything. Sofia Sanchez got the attention of the rapper after posting a video on social media doing the viral "In My Feelings Challenge," and in the process hoped the rapper would stop by the hospital to see her. He did. And now about a week later she received a new heart.

The 11-year-old from west suburban Downers Grove is recuperating at a local hospital and her family expects her to be home for Thanksgiving. What an all around blessing for that precious child and her family, and I'm sure a birthday gift she will never forget.
