Country singer Luke Bryan made a dying girl’s wish come true with just a few simple words. 17-year-old Kenna Taylor found out from doctors that her time on Earth was very limited from Cystic Fibrosis, a genetic disease that attacks the lungs. Her dying wish was for Bryan to send her a tweet, according to Entertainment Tonight. But it took actor James Woods, known for his role in Martin Scorsese’s “Casino,” to make the wish come true. Wood first tweeted to Bryan on Sept. 15 about Taylor’s tragic situation saying, “You may all remember the young girl @KennaTaylor97 in hospice with CF. Her one wish is a tweet from @LukeBryanOnline. Let’s do this. RT.” Finally, three days later, Bryan tweeted Taylor a simple, get-well message, “@KennaTaylor97 hope you feel better today. “ The teen girl ecstatically tweeted back, “Am I dead?? LUKE SERIOUSLY JUST TWEETED ME FOR THE ENTIRE WORLD TO SEE! !!! OMG OMG OMG OMG http://fb.me/3cUYKVS2H.”
