Miley Cyrus may be the tongue-twisting, twerking queen, but she's also a young woman with a big heart.
When the 21-year-old learned that a fan named Caley Camarillo, 12, was losing her battle with cystic fibrosis, she sent the ailing girl a sweet video message offering love, prayers, and support. The video reached young Caley, whom Miley met years ago, just an hour before her death last Friday.
"Hey Caley, it's Miley," the "Wrecking Ball" singer began. "I've been talking to your mama the past few days. I know we met a few years ago, but I want to let you know that I'm still praying for you. I'm still thinking about you. I'm sending you some love. I just want you to know that you on are on my mind and in my heart, and I just wanted to send you a quick message to say hello to you."
The girl's mother, Teresa, later posted the video on Facebook and explained the connection between her daughter and the star.
On Sunday, two days after Caley passed, Miley dedicated her performance to the girl.
Miley has a special place in her heart for those suffering from cystic fibrosis. In 2007, she lost one of her best friends, a 12-year-old named Vanessa, to the lung disease. The singer later tattooed the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's motto "just breathe" in tribute to her pal.
