Beyoncé Made This Sick High Schooler’s Dream Come True With A FaceTime Call

As usual, Beyoncé saves the day.

High school senior Ebony Banks is battling a rare form of stage four cancer. Upon diagnosis, she told friends and classmates at her high school, Alief Hastings in Houston, that her one wish was to meet Beyoncé. Then on Wednesday, her dream came true in the form of a FaceTime call.

According to ABC13, Ebony, better known to her friends as Ebob, spent most of her senior year getting treatment at MD Anderson Hospital. On March 16, her school district tried to cheer her up by putting together a graduation ceremony for her at the hospital.

Afterwards, Ebony’s friends were determined to get her a meeting with Beyoncé. They used the hashtag #EBOBMEETSBEYONCÉ to get the singer’s attention and because Queen Bey never disappoints, it worked.

A stage four diagnosis of cancer has kept Banks out of the classroom much of the year. In an effort to help make one of Banks' biggest dreams come true, her friends have started using the hashtag #EBOBMEETSBEYONCE on social media. "(Banks) is a really big fan of (Beyonce) and she has so much love for her that we really want to get (Banks) to meet her," said senior Cristal Depaz. "Beyonce is one of her idols. She admires her so much, so we're trying to put that on Twitter and Instagram to get Beyonce's attention," said Gutierrez.
