TOLEDO, Ohio - Keith Urban visited his “number one fan” before a concert in Toledo, making a wish come true for a 25-year-old woman entering hospice.
Marissa English, who was born with multiple health issues including an inoperable cyst in her brain, also suffers from cerebral palsy and severe scoliosis, local media reported. English had tickets to Urban’s show in Toledo on Thursday, but she was unable to attend the concert.
@KeithUrban @mercy_health Keith will be in Toledo for a concert tomorrow (10/18). His “number 1 fan” is a patient here at St. Vs in Toledo! She had tix for the concert but is now facing hospice. Trying to reach out to see if Keith can possibly give this young girl her dying wish— Laura Biel (@LauraBiel71) October 17, 2018
English will enter hospice. Nurses started a social media campaign to get the attention of Urban before the concert. The country star paid a visit to English at the Mercy Health Children’s Hospital, singing her a song and inviting several family members to his concert.
