"I gave him my autograph, and he gave me his", Sofia says. "The surgery was to help my heart pump", Sofia said in her Instagram video.

Sanchez and her cousin shared their own version of the popular "In My Feelings" challenge to the Lurie Children's Hospital YouTube channel, which you can view below.

Drake, in a surprise visit, granted one of two of Sanchez's birthday wishes (the other being to receive a new heart).

Drake made a heart transplant patient's birthday when he paid her a visit in hospital, after seeing the young girl's now-viral video doing the Kiki challenge.

Drake was in town over the weekend for his concert at the United Center.

His video for God's Plan also showed the rapper surprising people in Miami with money - after he made a decision to give away the entire $1m (£780,000) budget for the video. Sofia was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy, a condition that often leads to heart failure and need for heart transplantation in order to survive.

In the post, Sanchez can be seen screaming with excitement and hugging Drake after he enters her room. Each year Lurie Children's performs only four VADs.

Sanchez and Drake must have had some kind of connection because the Toronto native posted a photo with her including the caption, "Me and my love Sofia talking about Bieber and Owls and Basketball", including three blue hearts. In the last several years, Lurie Children's has recruited some of the top pediatric heart transplant specialists in the country. Honestly, it kind of looked like he was the one who was getting to meet his favorite artist on his birthday - but Sofia was really the mega fan.
