Marissa English was on hospice care and couldn’t attend Keith Urban‘s sold-out concert despite having tickets to the show in Toledo, Ohio.
The 25-year-old is in rapidly declining health. She was born with
“a myriad of health conditions including water and an inoperable cyst on her brain, severe scoliosis and cerebral palsy.”
Her nurses knew this wasn’t just a fan, but an Urban super-fan so they lobbied the country music superstar through social media and he made a surprise visit.
Urban serenaded English before his Thursday night show with Blue Ain’t Your Color as he holds her hand.
Urban dedicated the Ohio concert to English,
“who I truly think is my biggest fan.”
Her mother said that doctors didn’t give Marissa English long to live saying,
“Go home and enjoy her for possibly a year. That might be the longest you have her.”
