Jonas Brothers Surprise Fan At Hospital After She Had To Miss Concert For Chemotherapy Treatment
Teenager Lily Jordan was supposed to be rocking out at aconcert this past weekend, but instead she had to undergo chemotherapy treatment. So, the famous family stopped by her hospital room to pay her a very special surprise visit before the show.
Late last week 16-year-old Jordan posted a screenshot of an Instagram story, letting her followers know that she couldn't make the Jonas Brothers' Hershey, Pennsylvania, concert on Saturday due to chemotherapy.
"I was supposed to be at your Hershey concert tomorrow but instead I'm across the street doing chemo," Lily wrote on Instagram. "If y'all wanted to pop in I'll give you my room number."
She also asked her followers to tag the band or put her post in their stories in hopes of getting their attention. And her post did just that.
The hashtag she used, #LilySeesTheJonasBrothersChallenge2019, went viral — even Pennsylvania Representative Scott Perry shared her post.
"Our good friend Lily is fighting for her life in Hershey tonight and so badly wanted to see the Jonas Brothers tomorrow night at Hersheypark, but can't because of her urgent treatment," he wrote on Facebook Friday. "If there is anyway for them to visit her, we are lifting up her hopes and our prayers for help."
The Jonas Brothers saw the posts and couldn't help but stop in to visit Jordan at Penn State Children's Hospital before their concert.
The Milton S. Hershey Medical Center posted a sweet video of the famous trio walking into the teen's room. "We saw your messages, we had to come over," said Joe, to the smiling Jordan. "It went everywhere, my entire feed was filled," added Kevin.
Even Nick's wife, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, tagged along for the visit and met Jordan. After chatting for a bit, Nick asked Jordan if she had a favorite song they could dedicate to her during their concert that night. While Jordan was a bit flustered, she said their 2007 hit "S.O.S" was her pick — to which Kevin answered, "Done."
The brothers also signed autographs and snapped pictures with the teen.
Jordan later posted photos from the visit on Instagram. "Wow. The power of social media you guys," she wrote in the caption. "YOU did this. YOU made my crappy chemo session into something incredibly special and unforgettable. Thank you thank you thank you @jonasbrothers for taking time out of your day to come pay me a visit. Literally made my life."
The Jonas Brothers are in the midst of their "Happiness Begins" tour for their recently released comeback album of the same name.
