Drake, 31, visited an 11-year-old birthday girl in Chicago awaiting a heart transplant and the photos that they took together are adorable enough to melt even the Grinch's heart.

"Thank you Drake for coming to see me, it means a lot for you to come and cheer me up", Sanchez said in the statement.

Sofia swapped the vehicle for her hospital wheelchair and Drake saw it during his tour which was when he made a decision to go and visit Sofia while performing in Chicago.

Earlier this summer, Sanchez was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy, a condition that often leads to heart failure and need for heart transplantation in order to survive.

Drake made a special young fan's birthday wish come true when he turned up at the hospital where she is awaiting a heart transplant.

"Me and my love Sofia talking about Bieber and Owls and Basketball", Drake captioned a photo of the two on Instagram.

The "God's Plan" crooner delivered, signing autographs for Sofia, gifting her a "Scorpion" album baseball cap, singing and taking selfies.

A heart transplant is often needed to survive, and Sofia is now on the waiting list.

Drake was in town to perform at the United Center as part of his "Aubrey and the Three Migos" tour at the United Center on Saturday and Sunday night. And as if that wasn't sweet enough, she also recorded a message from her bed the next day asking the rapper to come and meet her. The first was to be given a new heart, and the second was to meet Drake.

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