Her music alone can bring a smile to anyone’s face, but Florence Welch of Florence + The Machine decided that a special teen in Austin, TX deserved more.
Karinya, a 15-year-old from Austin, TX, had tickets to see the British singer in her hometown. Due to a terminal cancer, her hospice doctor and nurses told the teen that she would not be able to attend the show.
“We tried to entertain the idea and it felt so scary and overwhelming for the medical staff and her mother that finally I said no, and my heart broke again,” Hospice Austin wrote on their Facebook page.
Friends and family reached out to Florence’s camp and asked if she would pay Karinya a visit in her hospice room, and the gracious singer agreed.
“Florence walked around the corner to the patient’s room — stuffed to the gills with teen friends — and there were shrieks and squeals and so much joyous music and singing and tears and tears and tears of grief and joy and hope and love and utter devastation and somehow simple kindness made everything better,” the care community added.
Florence didn’t just pay a visit. She performed a private, 45-minute concert for the teen, who had a room full of friends and family to enjoy the priceless moment with her.
