Beyoncé just made one teenage cancer patient's last wish come true.

People reports that Houston high school student, Ebony Banks, who has stage four cancer, received a FaceTime call from her idol on Wednesday while at MD Anderson Cancer Center.


"I love you," the "Formation" singer told Banks, whose nickname is "Ebob," during their conversation.

The opportunity to chat with the Grammy winner came about when Banks' friends and classmates created the hashtag #EBOBMEETSBEYONCE on social media in an effort to help make one of her biggest dreams a reality.


"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," Karina Gutierrez, a sophomore at Banks' high school, said.

According to CW39 NewsFix, Banks' high school held a special early graduation for the cancer patient in the hospital.


The FaceTime call with Bey is the perfect graduation gift, we must say!

And this isn't the first time Bey has helped a fan. Back in 2014 at a concert in London, Beyoncé shared a sweet moment with a young fan, who held up a sign that read, "You helped me beat depression. From now on I will always rise," during her performance of “Halo."

All hail Bey and her enduring kindness.
