Singer Katy Perry Visits Home of Fan With Cancer Who Missed Out on Concert
A 6-year-old Australian girl, Grace Moore, was devastated to miss out on a Katy Perry concert in Adelaide, Australia due to an operation to treat her brain cancer. However, she got something even better: a home visit by the singer on July 31.
Grace was unfortunately diagnosed with a 6-cm tumor in her head and has been dealing with the consequences all year. The girl has been a big fan of Katy Perry since age 3, and she was given concert tickets as a birthday present.

When Grace missed the concert, her 16-year-old sister, Tiana, urged people to retweet Grace’s story about battling cancer and hopefully gain the attention of the pop singer.
After over 20,000 retweets, Grace was blessed with a sudden visit by Perry, alongside her parents, Tiana, and her cousins, in Banksia Park, according to The Advertiser.
“When Katy arrived out the front, Grace was a bit shell-shocked. She was just in awe, the smile on her face was just priceless,” her mother Marie told The Advertiser.
Perry was invited to a tour of Grace’s bedroom, and afterward she sang three of her songs picked out by Grace: “Firework,” “Roar,” and “Chained to the Rhythm,” reported People.
Katy Perry spent an hour with the family, including posing for photos, and she even shared a video of herself and Grace with her more than 70 million followers.

Marie told The Advertiser that the singer was a really genuine and nice person.
“Just the way she spoke to all of my kids, she’s really heartfelt,” she said.
Everyone in the family shared about how surreal the visit was. Tiana’s friend even tweeted a screen recording video of her Snapchat story to share the special moment.
