Sam Hunt helped one brave little girl’s dreams come true this week.
Earlier this year, doctors discovered a lump in 9-year-old Cadence Fox’s pituitary gland. After further testing, her family was told that Cadence had two germinoma cancer tumors on her brain, which was causing damage to her glands, eyesight and other parts of her body. To battle the cancer, Cadence had to undergo 4 rounds of chemotherapy and 6 weeks of radiation.
When Brandy Angel, founder of the The Brandy Angel Foundation, heard about Cadence’s incredible strength through her cancer battle, she knew she had to step in.
“Cadence’s mom Tara told me how Cadence has never once complained about her treatments and the first time they hooked up her chemo treatment Tara began to cry at the thought of poison going into her daughter’s tiny body,” Angel told Fox 5. “Cadence looked at her mom and said ‘mom it’s ok, it’s JUST CHEMO.’ These little warriors never cease to amaze me with their strength and heart.”
When Angel found out that Cadence had missed out on seeing her favorite country star Sam Hunt live in concert because of her chemo treatments, Angel knew exactly how to make this little girl’s dreams come true. With a little help from Hunt’s team and some local businesses, the 9-year-old was treated to a day she’ll never forget.
After undergoing a day of pampering, Cadence was given two tickets to see Hunt perform live. She also was able to meet the singer after the show and snagged a few adorable pictures with her favorite singer.
“She smiled so much all day and felt so pretty and special,” Angel said. “To be able to bring so many loving, compassionate people together to make a little girl’s dreams come true is one of the most beautiful experiences of my life.”
