An 11-year-old girl who was surprised with a hospital visit from Drake has more good news.
Sofia Sanchez took part in the “In My Feelings” challenge and invited Drake to visit her at Sofia at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago for her birthday.
Drake missed Sofia’s birthday, but showed up days later to take selfies, talk about Justin Bieber, owls and basketball. He also gifted her merchandise.
Days later, Sofia found out her second birthday wish -- one for a new heart -- is coming true.
“I’m getting a heart, Mom! Oh my God,” she exclaims in the clip.
Sofia has been in the hospital for several weeks awaiting a new heart. The Daily Herald reported that was diagnosed over the summer with cardiomyopathy, which makes it hard for the heart to pump blood to the body and can lead to heart failure.
