It seems we've been hit with a non stop barrage of bad news lately, and with all of the news regarding the coronavirus pandemic, its easy to forget there are still countless people fighting for their lives with other ailments as well such as cancer.  One young man named Elijah lost his battle unfortunately on Friday to cancer at just 11 years old, but before he passed away. he got a chance to connect with 3 of his favorite artists, The Weeknd, J. Cole & Drake.   His cousin shared a video of some of his moments talking to the artists.  

Over the past 3 years, my 11 y.o. cousin, Elijah, has battled cancer with the utmost resilience. Elijah's physical fight is now complete, as he transitioned to heaven on Friday. He didn't leave this world without knowing how much he was loved though. Last weekend, Elijah got to "meet" 3 of his favorite artists — The Weeknd, J. Cole, & Drake. Incredibly grateful for these 3 super-humans being so caring for my family during this time. We’ll hold onto these moments forever. A special thank you to the angels, Kathryn & Krystal for helping make this happen in such a short time. Please lift Kiara, Elijah's mom, and the rest of the fam up in your thoughts & prayers. In a time where there seems like so much is out of our control, one thing that we all have the power to give + show others is LOVE. 2 Corinthians 5:8
