Beyonce Makes a Wish Come True

posted by Arielle -

There's a good chance if you wish on a star nothing will happen but if you want to up the ante wish with a hashtag!

Beyonce surprised a Houston high school student on FaceTime.

Ebony Banks missed most of her senior year due to a dire diagnosis. She’s battled a rare, stage 4 cancer. Ebony’s high school hosted a special graduation ceremony for Ebony.

Reading between the lines, her prognosis looks pretty bleak.

So her friends jumped on social media with the hashtag using Ebony's nickname #EbobMeetsBeyonce. They tagged the Houston TV stations, and Ellen DeGeneres and Tina Knowles. The word got to Beyonce, who didn’t disappoint.

A clip of their FaceTime got posted to Instagram. From her hospital bed, Ebony said “I love you, Beyonce” and she replied “I love you!” (The Hollywood Reporter)

Beyoncé facetiming with Ebony, a fan with a rare cancer disease whose wish was to meet Beyoncé 😭😭🤧❤️ ------------------------------------------------ "High school student Ebony Banks, who has stage four cancer, had her dream came true Wednesday when she received a FaceTime call from her hero, Beyoncé. Banks — who attends Alief Hastings High School in Houston, Texas — has spent most of her senior year at MD Anderson Cancer Center fighting a rare stage four cancer, according to KIAH, a local news station. Earlier this month, the school district held a special early graduation ceremony for Banks, whose nickname is “Ebob,” in the hospital. And as the ultimate graduation present, Banks’ friends and classmates created the hashtag #EBOBMEETSBEYONCE on social media so that she could meet with Beyoncé in an effort to help make one of her biggest dreams come true." "Beyonce is one of her idols. She admires her so much, so we're trying to put that on Twitter and Instagram to get Beyonce's attention," said Gutierrez. --------------------------------------------------God Bless you, Ebony! We're praying for you beautiful! #BeyHive 🐝🙏🏽
