Luke Combs treated a young fan battling acute myeloid leukemia to the trip of a lifetime this weekend.
17-year-old Addison (Addi) Conely’s mom shared the story on Facebook revealing the country singer flew her and her entire family out from their home in California to Ohio for his performance at the Buckeye Country Superfest on Saturday
“Our girl has a bucket list of all the things she wants to do and see. One of her wishes was to meet and go to a Luke Combs concert, where he would sing her favorite song. This week with the help of some pretty amazing people this happened,” she wrote.
With the help of friends, the family got in contact with a member of Luke’s team who helped arrange the trip for the family along with a meet and greet with Luke himself.
“He chatted with Addi and hung on her every word, talked about his beautiful wife, their brand new baby, his friend who had cancer twice once in the third grade and then again last year. How they all shaved their heads to stand with him and Addi talked about how all of her brothers, bf and friend’s did too on the same day she lost her hair. He gave so much love as we listened and cried with their stories they were exchanging,” Staci wrote. “This moment made time stand still. She was genuinely happy and so blown away by his kindness, honestly we all were.”
The Country Music Entertainer of the Year invited Addi on stage to sing her favorite song, “Better Together,” to her.
Addi’s mom shared, “He asked everyone to turn on their flashlights and to sing along to our girl and they did just that. It was so beautiful, we all watched while the tears streamed down our cheeks. Tonight the world was right and there was no talk of Addi’s cancer, no talk of dying and no talk of not making it to her 18th birthday. Her smile says it all! Tonight was perfect.”
