Beyoncé Surprises Cancer Patient with Facetime Call
Beyoncé made a young girls dream come true on Wednesday (March 22).
A high school senior in Houston, Tex. received the surprise of her life when Beyoncé called her on Facetime. The young girl, Ebony Banks, is battling a rare form of cancer, which has progressed to stage four.
One of Banks’ biggest dreams was to meet Beyoncé, so her friends launched a social media campaign using the hashtag #EBOBMEETSBEYONCE (“EBOB” is her nickname) to make her wish come true.
“[Banks] is a really big fan of [Beyoncé] and she has so much love for her that we really want to get [Banks] to meet her,” said Banks’ friend Cristal Depaz. “Beyoncé is one of her idols. She admires her so much, so we’re trying to put that on Twitter and Instagram to get Beyoncé’s attention.”
Just days after their hashtag went viral, Bey granted Banks’ wish and surprised her with a FaceTime phone call.
“I love you Beyoncé,” said Banks as she chatted with her idol from the hospital. A smiling Bey waved back and replied, “I love you.”
