BUFFALO, N.Y. (WGRZ) -- A young Buffalo girl had tickets for the Ariana Grande concert Friday but learned this week she would need emergency surgery and would have to miss the show.
Brianna Zarbo has spina bifida and scoliosis. She also has swallowing issues.
Her family was told she wouldn't be able to speak but not only can she speak, Brianna can sing!
She's had 27 surgeries in her young life and instead of attending Ariana Grande's concert, Brianna is about to undergo her 28th surgery.
When asked what it would mean to meet her favorite singer, Brianna tearfully said, "everything."
Word got out to the superstar.
She wasn't able to visit the hospital but instead, according to Brianna's family, Grande sent flowers, T-shirts, hats and a poster that read, "I am sending you the biggest hug. We wish you were here and all send our love."
