A teenage girl who had a bone cancer relapse was surprised by the Jonas Brothers after her social media post went viral.
Sixteen-year-old Lily Jordan was supposed to attend the Jonas Brothers’ Happiness Begins concert in Pennsylvania, United States. The concert was the American pop band’s first tour after a six-year hiatus since members Kevin, Joe, and Nick broke up in 2013. However, the concert date coincided with the teen’s chemotherapy treatment.
Instead of sulking in her hospital bed, Jordan turned to Instagram and asked her followers for help. She posted how much she would love for the Jonas Brothers to come to visit her since she could not leave the hospital. In her post, she even tagged the band’s Instagram account and pleaded her followers to make her story viral until it reached the pop group.
In an unexpected turn of events, Jordan’s story became viral, and the Jonas Brothers responded to the post. Right before their concert, the brothers went out of their way and visited the teen at Penn State Children’s Hospital.
The brothers made the teen even happier when they said they would dedicate one of their songs to her during the concert. They even promised to send Jordan a video of the song’s performance.
After the visit, Jordan went back to Instagram to thank her followers and the Jonas Brothers. In her post, she recognized the power of social media to turn things around, particularly in transforming something dreadful—like her chemotherapy session—into something special and memorable.
