Young Money’s Drake is not letting the money, clothes or women get to his head and helped make a terminally-ill teenager’s dream come true over the weekend.
According to reports, Drizzy came through for 15-year-old Kennedy Brown‘s surprise prom party yesterday (April 12).
A young girl is in a serious battle with cancer. Her classmates were so moved by her courage, they made sure she got the prom every teenage girl deserves. On Saturday, Drake himself made that dream come true, in a personal visit with Kennedy, that left the courageous young girl with a smile that couldn’t be shaken off her beautiful face. (ABC Local)
Prior to the Drizzy surprise, her classmates looked out for Brown with a handful of celebratory events.
Kennedy Brown is a 15-year-old freshman at Carnegie Vanguard who has been battling brain cancer for over two years. When an inoperable regrowth of her brain tumor forced Kennedy to stop attending school, her friends stepped in to make sure she experienced every high school memory in one day. That day was Monday, just barely 48 hours after planning began during a Friday brainstorming session among Kennedy’s friends. (ABC News)
The students also sparked a Drake campaign in hopes of the Toronto native coming through to make her dream come true.
The teenager is a huge fan of the singer Drake, such that one of her prom pictures from Monday includes Drake’s photo as the backdrop. “That was one of her favorite moments,” said Brown. “Just the fact that they put this life-sized picture next to her was exciting and you could see the smile on her face.” Kennedy’s classmates asked everyone to tweet Drake using the hashtag #DrakeForKen and now, according to Moss, the singer has heard them. “We hear that word has reached Drake and he plans to record a personalized video so we’re hoping that takes place today,” Moss said.

Last month, Drake’s labelmate Nicki Minaj visited a cancer survivor.
Nicki Minaj showed just how big her heart is by making one young fan’s dream come true. Five-year-old Damiyah Telemaque-Nelson was diagnosed with cancer in October, and her wish was to meet Nicki and get one of her pink wigs. (Rap-Up)
