So sweet! Beyoncé Just Did Something Super Lovely For A Cancer-Stricken Fan
Imagine the shock she must've gotten!
Ebony Banks, a high school student from Houston Texas, had her dream come true when her idol, Beyoncé, rang her on FaceTime.
The teenager, who’s nicknamed Ebob, is battling a rare form of stage four cancer, and has spent most of her senior year at MD Anderson Cancer Center rather than at Alief Hastings High School with her classmates.
The school district held a special early graduation ceremony in the hospital for her, where she was surrounded by loving friends.
Ebob mentioned to her friends that her only wish was to meet Beyoncé, so they took to Twitter and created the hashtag #EbobMeetsBeyonce in an attempt to get the Formation singer’s attention.
And it worked! Ebony’s dream became a reality when her phone started to ring, and when she picked up, Beyoncé’s appeared on screen.
The pair spoke over FaceTime, while Ebony’s friends shared the happy news on Instagram.

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.
