Francis Stanaway, an 88-year-old woman battling a terminal illness had the time of her life Friday night, when she got to meet her man crush, Luke Bryan.
Stanaway’s family worked with event organizers, and Crossroads Hospice through their “Gift of a Day” program to arrange for this special fans’ meet and greet with Bryan at the Sprint Center prior to his performance.
To say Ms. Stanaway was THRILLED would be an understatement.
She’s a long-time fan of country music and according to KSHB-TV in Kansas City, she even wore a decorated Luke Bryan shirt for the occasion.
She was escorted by her son and daughter-in-law to the concert.
Francis also brought along a birthday gift for Luke, who recently turned 41. She gifted him with a bag of Lay’s potato chips (Luke’s favorite) and a can of Topsy popcorn (another favorite of Bryan’s).
