Beyoncé Grants a Stage 4 Cancer Patient's Final Wish

Just a call away.

Published March 23, 2017

As is the case with her unexpected announcements and albums, Beyoncé has remarkably mastered the art of surprise.  

Now, with a simple FaceTime call, Queen Bey’s latest surprise just made the ultimate dream of a high school student battling a rare form of cancer come true.

Ebony Banks received the call from her idol on Wednesday (March 22) while in the hospital. According to local news station KIAH, she is a senior student at Alief Hastings High School in Bey’s Houston hometown, spending the majority of her final year of high school in the MD Anderson Cancer Center while in the fourth stage of the rare cancer form.

KIAH reports that the school district held an early graduation ceremony for the young fan, and her closest friends teamed up to present her with the most unforgettable graduation gift yet: a FaceTime call from Bey. With efforts to make the hashtag “#EBOBMEETSBEYONCE” go viral, they were able to raise enough of a buzz to reach Mrs. Knowles-Carter. Sure enough, Bey rang the young fan up with a warm exchange.

“I love you, Beyonce,” Banks said to her idol on the call as Bey smiled, waved and returned an “I love you,” right back.

Many blessings and prayers for Ebony!
