Kanye West made a young fan’s dream come true recently, rapping for her over the phone shortly before she passed away after a battle with cancer.

West’s good deed would have gone unnoticed if it weren't for a Twitter user named Debbie, who responded to another tweet wishing for “Wealth, health, and new music from Kanye West” in 2018.

“This girl in my town had cancer and Kanye called her a couple days ago to rap for her,” she said. “I think Kim was there too. Wasn’t even blasted on social media or anything. She passed yesterday. I have so much respect for him tho. Making her happy in her last moments.”

While no other details were provided, Kim Kardashian seemed to have confirmed the event by replying “We are praying for her family.”
