Miley Cyrus sends well wishes to dying 12-year-old fan
Miley Cyrus sent a special message to a young fan who was battling cystic fibrosis.
Miley Cyrus may have a bad rap for displaying erratic and somewhat outlandish behavior, but the young star has proven that she really is all heart.
Cyrus sent her well wishes via video to Caley Camarillo, a 12-year-old fan who had endured a lifelong battle with cystic fibrosis. The songstress sent her sincere prayers and love to Camarillo, who passed away last Friday shortly after viewing the message, according to the Facebook page of the young girl's mother, Teresa Camarillo. "Miley Cyrus sent this to Caley and she was able to watch it one hour before she passed," wrote Teresa. "We have a video of Caley watching the vid but that we will save for ourselves. She managed to let out a smile. I take great comfort in this for some reason."
The "Wrecking Ball" singer sent a message to Caley that was sweet and simple, just to let the girl know that she was thinking about her. "Hey, Caley; it's Miley. I've been talkin' to your mama the past few days," Cyrus said in the video. "I know we met a few years ago, so I just wanted to let you know that I'm still praying for you, I'm still thinking about you, because you need some love. I just wanted to let you know that you are on my mind and in my heart and I wanted to send you a quick message to say hello to you," the songstress added before blowing a kiss.
Cyrus, who is currently on her Bangerz North American tour, also tweeted a message for Caley on Sunday night before performing.
The situation is eerily reminiscent of an encounter involving Ed Sheeran and a teenage fan just a couple of months ago. Sheeran learned in April that 15-year-old Triona Priestley's dying wish was to hear him sing his song, "Little Bird." Word got to Sheeran via Twitter that the teen did not have much time left, and he serenaded her over the phone just moments before she passed away. "Ed rang Triona and personally sang 'Little Bird' to her as she took her last breaths," said Lucy Hanlon, a close friend of the Triona's.
