Drake a visit to a hospital in Chicago, Illinois on Monday to see a young girl who posted a video of herself doing “In My Feelings” challenge, awaiting a heart transplant.
Sofia Sanchez, an 11-year-old patient at the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago, was seen dancing in a video posted by the hospital last Wednesday — to the famous rapper’s song, which has become a viral dance craze in the past few months.
Sanchez danced together with her cousin in a hospital corridor while “strapped to her IV pump.” In another video, the young girl asks Drake to visit her in the weekend when he was performing in Chicago.
Drake, in a surprise visit, issued for one of the two of Sanchez’s birthday wishes (the other is for the receiving of a new heart).
“Me and my love Sofia’s talk about Bieber and Owls and Basketball,” Drake captioned a photo of the two on Instagram.
Me and my love Sofia’s talk about Bieber and Owls and Basketball???
It also appears Drake gifted Sanchez a hat with the word “Scorpion” — the title of his fifth studio album.
The children’s hospital online wrote that Sanchez had been diagnosed with cardiomyopathy, a condition that makes it harder for the heart to pump blood and can lead to heart failure, according to the Mayo Clinic.
The 11-year-old underwent open heart surgery three weeks ago for connecting a mechanical pump to support the circulation.
Fans of Drake are posting videos of themselves dancing to the signature of the groove to his song, “In My Feelings, after a video of Drake performing the movements was posted on Instagram in July.
