Sofia Sanchez, who celebrated her 11th birthday on Saturday, is awaiting a heart transplant at Lurie Children's Hospital. "I hope you can come and cheer me up".

Not only did he call Sofia Sanchez his "love", but he wore the biggest grin on his face in every single shot these two snapped together at Lurie's Children's Hospital of Chicago.

The resulting heartfelt moment was captured by the staff at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital, who shared the footage on Instagram.

Drake made a special young fan's birthday wish come true when he turned up at the hospital where she is awaiting a heart transplant.

In the post, Sanchez can be seen screaming with excitement and hugging Drake after he enters her room.

Sanchez is a heart patient who has been diagnosed with cardiomyopathy and has been waiting for a new heart for weeks, according to the hospital's YouTube page. In another video, the young girl asks Drake to visit her over the weekend, as he was performing in Chicago.

The video quickly made the rounds online, with many urging Drake to meet with Sanchez, and the 31-year-old took notice and made the trip to the Windy City.
