For this, Drake is at least momentarily in the no-slander zone. The Toronto rapper made a teen and terminally-ill cancer patient’s dream come true by paying her a surprise visit in Houston. 

Reports VIBE:

Similar to the generosity extended by his Young Money cohort Nicki Minaj, Drake granted the wish of a terminally-ill teenage cancer patient with a visit to Houston, TX. Kennedy Brown, 15, a student at Carnegie Vanguard High School who suffers from an inoperable cancerous brain tumor, got a special surprise from Drizzy himself after her friends rallied for the rapper’s attention via social media.

Employing the hashtag #DrakeForKen, Kennedy’s friends appealed to Drake to ask that she get the chance to met him. This followed their organization of a prom and graduation for Kennedy, who was forced to stop attending school because of her condition. When the rapper got wind of her story, he said that he would record a personalized video for Kennedy, but a bigger surprise was in store when he paid her a visit.

Drake took to Instagram to share the experience. Check out the photos in the gallery.
