Thomas Rhett Snaps Selfie With Cancer Survivor
Thomas Rhett made one young fan's dreams come true this past weekend.
During his Very Hot Summer Tour stop at the Darien Lake Performing Arts Center in upstate New York on Friday night, Rhett spotted 11-year-old Madison Muckle in the crowd. She was holding a bright yellow sign that read: "Look What God Gave Her” with three checkboxes underneath – Beat Cancer, Thomas Rhett Concert, and Selfie With Thomas Rhett.
Only the first two boxes were checked.
When Rhett read the sign, he knew exactly what he needed to do. "Oh my gosh, get up here,” he said.
Muckle made her way to the stage, where Rhett give her a hug and said: “We're gonna check all of these off. Where's that phone?” He then snapped a selfie with his young fan.
Rhett later shared to Instagram a photo that he captioned: “Madison, it was such a pleasure meeting you! May God continue to bless you and your sweet family. Hope you had a great time at the show.” The singer also shared a video of the special moment.
Muckle's mother, Jaimie Allport, took to Facebook to share her thanks. "So this happened tonight!! Thank you to all the people that sat near us and made it their mission to help Madison tonight!! Thank you to everyone that got pictures and send them to us.
“This is by far [one] of her best nights ever.”
Allport shared the selfie Rhett took of the two of them on stage. "She really is happy, those are happy tears!”
According to a 2018 article by the Orleans Hub, Muckle was just three years old when she was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. She immediately started two-and-a-half years of chemo treatments, including nine blood transfusions.
