Florence + The Machine throws private show for hospice patient

It is always great to see celebrities making a positive impact, so it is impossible not to share this heart-warming story involving Florence + The Machine.

One fan of the band, who is undergoing treatment for her illness at Hospice Austin’s Christopher House in Texas, had tickets to a show this weekend. Unfortunately, her illness kept her from attending the show.

Nurse practitioner Christie Kremer shared the story on Facebook.

“All week through set back after set back she asked if she would be able to go. We tried to entertain the idea and it felt so scary and overwhelming for the medical staff and her mother that finally I said no, and my heart broke again,” she wrote.

It is a truly sad story, but the hospice was not ready for what would come next.

After a great effort from the staff, Florence Welch and Rob Ackroyd from Florence + The Machine visited the young woman and gave her a private show. Everyone got to sing along, there were smiles and a dream come true.

This is the kind of story that restores our faith in humanity.
