Adele Visits A 12-Year-Old Terminally Ill Fan

Best surprise ever.

Hours before her second consecutive show for 11,000 fans in Belfast, Northern Ireland, on Tuesday, Adele visited a terminally ill 12-year-old fan in her Short Strand home during the afternoon.

Rebecca Gidney is a blind girl with cerebral palsy and epilepsy. Despite given just six months to live, she continues to fight on while in the hospital bed in her bedroom.

Her mother, Tracy, wanted to cheer up her daughter and found the perfect idea to have Adele visit her while in Belfast for her concerts. The only problem for Tracy was how to reach Adele.

Tracy tried everything to get Adele's attention, including creating an online petition, contacting Adele's management company, and using Twitter for help. She found no luck this way, until Tuesday morning.

"I was sitting in the hairdresser today and the manager called and said, Tracy it's Adele's manager, I am getting back to you because Adele has seen your Rebecca's pictures and she was very emotional and she wants to come and meet your daughter," she told Belfast Live.

Adele visited Rebecca on Tuesday and spent the afternoon with her. It was a moment that Rebecca and her family will always cherish.

"I am in shock, I got my baby's dream to come true," she told Belfast Live. "She was so nice, she could not have been nicer."

Adele also invited Rebecca's sisters to see her in concert as her guests.
