Superstar singer Katy Perry took some time out from her Australian tour, a visit to a sick fan after she could no longer attend the singer’s concert due to a brain tumor surgery.

Eight-year-old Grace Moores underwent a brain surgery last week after learning that they have a 6cm tumor.

Moores was going to attend Perry’s most recent concert in Adelaide, Australia, but learned that she would not be able to go because of her surgery. Grace Moores’ older sister, Tiana, tweeted at the superstar and shared the 8-year-old’s dilemma.

At the urging of others to “retweet” her message, Tiana wrote, “RETWEET PLEASE! my sister is meant to attend the @katyperry concert in Adelaide this year, but was diagnosed with a 6cm brain tumor and is fighting all year, grace… is Katy’s biggest fan since she was 3 years old, help us try to get in contact with @katyperry xx.”
