Drake visits patient, 11, who invited him to her birthday

During Sanchez's visit with Drake, the pair bonded over Justin Bieber, basketball, Drake's two dogs and they exchanged autographs, the hospital said. Sofia screamed 'Oh my God!' as he entered the room and Drake casually responded: "You asked me to come, I'm here".

Drake has granted the wish of a little girl who longed to meet him as she stayed in hospital waiting for a new heart.

The Canadian rapper visited 11-year-old Sofia Sanchez on Monday at the Lurie Children's Hospital during his tour's stop in Chicago.

Drake visited a young fan named Sofia Sanchez in a Chicago hospital on Monday.

Drake was in town to perform at the United Center as part of his "Aubrey and the Three Migos" tour at the United Center on Saturday and Sunday night.

Eye-opening study: Many people flush old contact lenses away
Lenses are not generally recycled, although one of the largest manufacturers Bausch + Lomb introduced a programme previous year . Halden said people don't think of the lenses as plastic waste because they feel like fluid, nearly like water.


The MailOnline reported how Sofia was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy, a heart muscle condition that can make it hard for the heart to deliver blood to the body and potentially lead to heart failure.

"I just had surgery three weeks ago. I wanted him to come cheer me up for my birthday this weekend", Sanchez adds.

A heart transplant is often needed to survive, and Sofia is now on the waiting list. Most often, it serves as a bridge to heart transplantation.

Just days before Sanchez' birthday, the hospital shot a video of Sanchez doing the viral "In My Feelings" Challenge with her cousin. In July, Lurie Children's heart transplant team performed their 300th heart transplant and the next heart recipient will be #305. In the last several years, Lurie Children's has recruited some of the top pediatric heart transplant specialists in the country.
