Luke Bryan connected with a very brave young man during a recent visit to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis.
Carson Higgins is 12-years-old and has been battling cancer off and on since he was just three-years-old. He’s currently facing a relapse, but you can see Carson was all smiles when he met Luke at the hospital on May 26.
Carson tweeted the photo along with the message, “Big S/o (shoutout) to @LukeBryanOnline for coming and visiting St. Jude patients and bringing some happiness into their days.”
Luke tweeted Carson back saying, “Good to meet you, buddy.”
For more information on Carson’s journey, go to CarsonStrong.org. His family has updated the blog on that site with every step of his story starting in 2007.
The details are sometimes hard to read, but the Strong family says, “We never held anything back. They are full of love and joy, despair and sadness, laughter and crying, soul searching, but above all, our faith in what we cannot see—our God above who has given us the strength and comfort to persevere over the past nine years.”
