Luke Combs Brings Teenager With Terminal Cancer On Stage For Powerful Performance.
Luke Combs may have brought out a whopping 63,000 fans out to Ohio Stadium in Columbus, Ohio, for Buckeye Country Superfest, but the more important accomplishment of the evening was making a dream come true for a 17-year-old girl.
According to Audacity, young Addison Conely (Addi), was diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia, an aggressive form of leukemia that, unfortunately in her case, is terminal.
Since the diagnosis, Addi has undergone a number of treatments including a bone marrow transplant as well as chemotherapy, but she’s also started scratching a number of things off her bucket.
And this weekend , Luke Combs helped her knock off a BIG one.
Her mother Staci shared this detailed post to Facebook:
“Tonight was literally the best night of our lives!
Over the last thirteen and a half months we have been faced with loosing our daughter more then anyone ever should have to even imagine, honestly don’t even try to imagine. The pain most days is unbearable. The heartache of watching your child fight a battle so hard and with everything they have has changed us. It has rocked us to our core.
So, Addi this one goes out to you, your favorite song, one of my favorite songs. This is ‘Better Together,’ let’s do it.”
No one has a bigger heart than Luke Combs!
A GoFund Me has been set up for Addi’s continued medical care and expenses… feel free to drop a few bucks in the jar.
