Kennedy Brown is a 15 year old brain cancer patient living in Houston, TX who had one wish, to meet Drake.
Last Thursday, according to ABC, Kennedy’s friends threw her a “‘high school in a day’ experience, crowned her prom queen and congratulated her in a private graduation ceremony”.
During the newscast of Kennedy’s story, her friend, Payton Campbell, asked “viewers to hashtag ‘drakeforken,'” in an effort to get the Toronto MC to come visit the teenager. Within hours, the hashtag had gone viral and thousands of Tweets poured into Drake’s feed.
With a little help from Ryan Seacrest, Drake called Kennedy and her parents on Friday night to tell them that he was going to make the trip down to Houston.
On Saturday, Kennedy’s wish came true and you can watch a video of the two meeting below! You can also check out some pictures from Drake’s Instagram, which included one special photo where the MC flipped the hashtag and wrote #DrakeForKen. A perfect match! And YES, she was given the all access pass and was able to touch his eyebrows!
Listen to Kennedy’s father call in to Ryan Seacrest’s show to talk about the day.
