Drake recalls fond memories with fan he met through Make-A-Wish Foundation; pays tribute online

No one can make fans happier than Drake, and the rapper has once again proved that he truly cares when it comes to his fans. The rapper has been visiting fans in their worse times to encourage them to keep fighting. The 32-year-old took to Instagram today to share a memory with one of his fans whom he had met through Make-A-Wish. The non-profit organization grants wishes to children who are diagnosed with critical conditions. 

Taking to Instagram, the rapper posted a picture with the follower whom he has been visiting during her fight through her illness. Although the diagnosed illness is not known, Drake was close to Kay, who had met Drake through the Make-A-Wish foundation.

In the heartfelt post, Drake wrote, "Gonna miss you a whole lot. We met through make a wish and we built a genuine bond you would text me and check on me while I was on tour and tell me positive things and share your dreams and goals. I am crying in this pic but it was tears of joy cause we just prayed for you with your father. I am sorry I missed your text on my birthday that’s eating my soul right now but you know how much I loved you and was looking forward to seeing you after tour. I don’t know why I am writing this on IG I just need to get it out cause it’s sitting heavy on my heart. Will remember you forever K! 😢💙 @the.kaydiaries."

Fans showed their support for the rapper and prayed for Kay who recently passed away. One fan commented, "Because of this I love you Aubs, God bless you and your soul!🙏🙏🙏😭", while another stated, "She will definitely still be checking on you 🙏🏾." Drake has been contributing to make his fans who suffer from critical illness feel better than they usually do. He had earlier paid a visit to a fan who was getting a heart transplant. He visited Sofia Sanchez, a patient at Lurie Children’s Hospital, on her birthday following her video of the Kiki Challenge which went viral on social media. 

The rapper had also posted a picture of one of his fans who was suffering from a fractured leg. Posting the picture of the girl treating on a sundae, the rapper wrote, "Heal your spirit on a Sunday...Heal your leg with a Sundae."

Drake had also paid a visit to 16-year-old Finn from Cavan who suffers from Duchenne’s muscular dystrophy. The rapper made sure that Finn received VIP treatment at the 3 Arena and after the concert, got to go backstage to chat with Drake. Finn’s mother said the wish has had a lasting impact on Finn, saying "it was a dream come true for Finn to meet Drake. His confidence has grown greatly since the wish and he still talks about the snapchat Drake took with him!"
