‘’Yes! Please,’’ Sofia replies with joy.
‘’I’m so happy I got to see you,’’ Drake tells the girl.

Sofia said: ‘’’He’s one of the first wishes I got in a long time,’ she said in a sweet video posted by the hospital.’’
‘’I didn’t talk for a minute, I was like “What, is this real?” and he’s like “It’s me, Drake.”
She added: ‘’This is the best birthday present I’ve ever had,’’
‘’Thank you so much, Drake, for coming to see me, it means a lot for you to come and cheer me up.’’
