Kelsea Ballerini has called “dibs” on Fairy Godmother status in country music, continuously granting her fans’ wishes and spreading joy to those in need. Today was no different, as Kelsea used Twitter to surprise a fan, Allie Allen, with a surprise proposal.
Allie was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2013 as an eighth grader. Once she was diagnosed with Grade 3 Anaplastic Ependymoma, she became a patient at St. Jude. After thirty-three rounds of chemo and an attempt to go back to life as she knew it before cancer, she was given the devastating news that her cancer had returned.
Allie experienced a miraculous turn when doctors could no longer find a tumor they deemed inoperable. Then, she stopped updating her blog (Dancer with Cancer) … until recently when she announced the cancer had returned once again. Allie has been a frequent resident of St. Jude since her initial diagnosis and that is where she met Kelsea and the two hit it off.
Now, Allie is finishing her last round of radiation and will be heading back into chemotherapy treatments, but before that, she has a little break. Kelsea is making sure that Allie’s break is far from uneventful, as she shared the following message with her:
First of all, Kelsea Ballerini, you are an absolute breath of fresh air — and not only in country music, but in the world. Thank you for continuing to give back and lead by glowing example. Allie, we cannot wait to see you at the CMA Awards and follow your exciting evening as one of the brightest stars in the room!
