Drake Surprises Teen Fan Battling Cancer with Personal Video


After getting word of one of his fans was hospitalized with a rare form of brain cancer from frequent collaborator Mustafa the Poet, Drake sent the 14-year-old a personalized video message.

“I can’t imagine how tough you have to be, and Mustafa let me know how you’re a fan of mine,” Drake states in the clip. “Well, I’m a fan of you. I’m a fan of people with heart, and I can tell that you have a lot of heart. I just wanna tell you, stay strong, I love you, and I appreciate you.”

The Toronto teen who is currently battling a rare form of brain cancer is surely still in awe after receiving a special video greeting from one of the city’s most notable celebrities. On Oct. 4, Temeka Ishmael shared a heartwarming video of her 14-year-old son, Zelek Murray. Zelek was laying in a hospital bed while watching the video and looked completely shocked by the surprise.

Zelek has been battling Ependymoma since he was nine years old, according to a GoFundMe page. He is undergoing treatment at SickKids Hospital and is “drained from radiation therapy and other treatments used to help shrink his tumour,” reads the fundraising page.
