Marissa English often kissed the Keith Urban T-shirt that lay on her pillow and had been looking forward to seeing her “Mr Hottie” in an upcoming concert. However, when her fragile health took a turn for the worse, that live date looked like being a distant dream. But then Marissa’s nurses contacted Urban and the country star stepped up to give the dying 25-year-old a wonderful surprise.
Marissa, from Bowling Green, Ohio, was born with multiple health problems including cerebral palsy and a cyst on her brain. She also suffers from scoliosis, a condition that means her spine is twisted rather than being straight. Evidently, the fact that she’s survived all this to see the age of 25 is pretty miraculous.
