Beyonce Surprises Cancer Patient With FaceTime Call [VIDEO]
Ebony Banks just got the surprise of her life when Beyoncé reached out to FaceTime with her.
Banks, a Houston high school senior battling stage 4 cancer, had one of her biggest wishes fulfilled when Bey surprised her with the call. It came after Ebony's fans launched a social media campaign, #EBOBMEETSBEYONCE.
“[Banks] is a really big fan of [Beyoncé] and she has so much love for her that we really want to get [Banks] to meet her,” said Banks’ friend Cristal Depaz. “Beyoncé is one of her idols. She admires her so much, so we’re trying to put that on Twitter and Instagram to get Beyoncé’s attention.”
The ploy worked because just a few days later, Bey was on the phone, speaking to Ebony from her hospital bed. The conversation was simple enough— it was all about love.
“I love you Beyoncé,” Ebony said, to which Beyonce waved back and replied, “I love you.” Watch the heartwarming video above.
