Beyonce facetimes with teenage cancer patient in a very touching video

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – they don’t call her the Queen for nothing.

When Texas Alief Hastings High School student Ebony Banks was diagnosed with a rare form of stage 4 cancer, she was no longer able to attend school and had to stay in hospital for most of her senior year.

Her family and friends launched a social media campaign with a message using Ebony's nickname, Ebob, and the hashtag #EBOBMEETSBEYONCE to fulfil Banks’ greatest wish of meeting Beyoncé, who is her idol.

The pop sensation eventually found out about it and agreed to facetime with the teenage cancer patient and the result in very touching.


In a clip below from their conversation they can be heard telling each other ‘I love you’:

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.

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!
