DRAKE FULFILLS WISH OF 15 YEAR OLD CANCER PATIENT KENNEDY BROWN
The power of social media is very strong. Social media paired with caring people is even stronger.
I’m sure by now most of you have seen the hashtag #DrakeForKen on both Twitter and Instagram. Kennedy Brown is a 15 year old from Houston, TX who is currently battling brain cancer. She is on hospice and her one wish was to meet Drake.
A few days ago her friends threw her a prom at school and she was even awarded an honorary degree. After all of this they still knew that meeting Drake was at the top of her list. Her family and friends began to spread the hashtag #DrakeForKen throughout social media and it quickly picked up as news stations and blogs began posting about the story. I had several people reach out to me through both social media and email and I was very touched. Apparently, so was Drake.
Yesterday it was announced that Drake was aware of Kennedy’s situation and he would be doing a video message for her. As a surprise to Kennedy, today he flew into Houston from LA for the sole purpose of meeting her. Drake personally visited Kennedy at her house and took to Instagram to post pictures from his time there. I think this speaks volumes about Drake’s character and showcases what an amazing individual he truly is. Major shout out to Kennedy for being such a beautiful, brave girl! Check the photos here.
