Watch as country crooner Clay Walker makes a cancer survivor’s greatest wish come true YouTube

After everything Clay Walker fan Jessica has been through, the long drive from North Carolina to Biloxi, Miss., is nothing. Yet at the same time, it was everything.

Sitting in the front row at one of Clay’s recent concert, she and her husband caught the country star’s attention so much that he had to stop the show to address them.

“I’ve never seen a shirt quite like this one and it moved me,” Clay told the crowd. “I’m gonna have a memory of Biloxi forever.”

Her proud husband was wearing a custom made T-shirt that featured a checklist of things his cancer surviving wife wanted to complete. The first line read “Finish Chemo,” and that box was checked. The next line read “Finish Radiation,” and that box was checked. As the crowds applause grew louder with each line Walker read off, he read the last line, which stood next to an unchecked box. “See Clay Walker sing “This Woman And This Man”.”

At that point, he grabbed a black Sharpie and invited Jessica and her proud husband to the stage, so he could check that box himself before bending down and giving her a kiss.

The checklist is now complete. Congratulations, Jessica!
