9 Year Old Boy Battling Cancer Gets Surprise From Kelsea Ballerini (Video)

“Her music helps me through when I do surgeries and in the MRI machine.  I listen to her songs every time.” 

Ayden Morgan was born with a very rare brain cancer.  Because of it at the age of three Ayden went blind.  The 9 year old goes through weekly treatments that would exhaust a healthy adult.  How does he get through it?  Music.  Especially songs by Kelsea Ballerini.  Ayden said, “Her music helps me through when I do surgeries and in the MRI machine.  I listen to her songs every time.” 

Last April Ayden got to meet Kelsea Ballerini.  They talked music and about their shared love of guitars.  It was a moment Ayden’s mom said her son will never forget.  Apparently the impact on Kelsea was just as great.  This week, unbeknownst to Ayden, Kelsea sent him a gift.  Watch as Ayden opens that gift.  It even has his name on it…in braille.  I’m not crying you’re…. wait, yes I am.  Ayden’s reaction, especially right at the end is priceless.
