Beyoncé Surprised a Teenage Fan Fighting Cancer With a FaceTime Call

Beyoncé made a teenage cancer patient’s wish come true when she surprised her with a FaceTime call this week. Ebony Banks, a Texas high school student has a rare form of stage four cancer, and Queen Bey is her idol. “She’s my everything,” she told KHOU-TV.

Her friends decided the two should meet, so they launched a social media campaign. Banks’ nickname is Ebob, and the hashtag #EBOBMEETSBEYONCE was born. It got lots of attention, and it eventually made its way to Beyoncé herself.

The singer called Banks on FaceTime this week, and while most of the conversation was private, some of it was filmed and in it you can hear Beyoncé say, “I love you.”

Banks is currently being treated at MD Anderson, but when she grows up she wants to be a pediatric nurse so she can help others in her situation.
