Beyonce dances with terminally ill fan at Las Vegas concert

It wasn’t enough for Beyonce to drop one of the biggest albums of the year right in the middle of the holiday season. Now, she’s made a young fan’s wish come true in a much bigger way.

The singer invited Taylon, a terminally ill cancer patient, to dance with her at her Las Vegas concert earlier this month.

Taylon’s dying wish was to dance with Beyonce, according to a video posted Christmas Eve on the singer’s YouTube channel.

“I am having so much fun,” Taylon, who has an inoperable brain tumor, says before the concert. “I can’t wait to see Beyonce.”

Beyonce dances with Taylon while singing “Survivor,” bringing the young girl to tears.

“There’s a little girl literally fighting for her life,” said Ivy McGregor, with Philanthropy Program Partnerships. “Tomorrow’s not promised, next week’s not promised, but right now I’m here, and her thought that will forever stay with me is, “Since I’m here, I might as well live.”
