Drake grants wish for teen girl with cancer

Toronto rapper Drake surprised a teen girl, diagnosed with cancer, in Miami alongside Rihanna last week.

'Best day of my life,' says 14-year-old with cancer after meeting Drake, Rihanna

Drake called it the best snapchat he's ever done.

Megan, the 14-year-old girl with cancer who stars in it, may be inclined to agree.

The Florida teen, diagnosed with progressive metastatic sarcoma, met Drake and Rihanna backstage at Rihanna's Anti World tour stop in Miami last week. The Make-A-Wish Foundation granted the teen's wish to meet "her favourite singer" Drake.

The teen, who listened to the rapper throughout her diagnosis and treatment, called the encounter "the best day of my life." 

In a video posted to Instagram, the teen, wearing a T-shirt with Drake's Take Care album cover, gets a peck on the cheek from Drake.

Megan said Drake was "so sweet and down to earth" in an Instagram post, adding he gave her and her family gear from his OVO clothing line.

The teen also posted a photo of herself alongside Rihanna.
