Beyonce recently fulfilled the wish of a 12-year-old girl suffering from terminal cancer by singing to and dancing with her at one of her concerts.

With the help of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Taylon attended a Beyonce show in Las Vegas earlier this month. As seen in a video posted on Beyonce's official YouTube page on Christmas Eve, the girl, who sat in a wheelchair, was then moved to tears when the singer stepped down from the stage and hugged her, saying, "Nice to meet you."

She then returned and began singing "Love On Top," allowing Taylon to sing along into her microphone. The girl was later seen standing up and dancing as Beyonce sang her old group Destiny's Child's hit "Survivor."

"They found an inoperable tumor on her brain and her dying wish was to dance with Beyonce," Ivy McGregor of Philanthropy Program Partnerships says in the video (watch it below).

"Meet Taylon, she has been fighting cancer since being diagnosed 12 months ago," McGregor had said on her Instagram page on Dec. 7. "Taylon has endured medicines, chemotherapy, radiation and multiple surgeries including a full leg amputate and STILL maintains an A average scholastically. Well due to a new recent finding of cancer on her brain which is inoperable - she was placed on hospice and given two weeks to live."

McGregor said she has "not met one so young and as strong, positive and courageous, as this beautiful 12-year-old young lady."
