Today, Sofia Sanchez has a brand new heart and is talking for the first time about her successful heart surgery and meeting her favorite artist of all time.
Sofia filmed a video before her 11th birthday in August asking for two presents: a visit from Drizzy and a new heart. Less than one week after Sofia’s “Kiki Challenge” dance video went viral, Drake visited her at the hospital.
Soon after meeting Drake, Sofia learned a donor heart was available. She underwent the nine-hour heart transplant. After waiting 48 days for a new heart and undergoing the successful transplant, Sofia was discharged from the hospital.
