Nicki Minaj, Instagram


Nicki Minaj just made one brave little girl's day!

Cancer patient Miyah dreamed of meeting her idol and wearing one of her infamous pink wigs, and so the superstar rapper graciously made it a reality.

The 31-year-old performer posted a series of heartwarming photos with the adorable 5-year-old child on her Instagram, as her young fan rocked bright hair similar to her hero. In one pic, the pair embrace and smile big for the camera. "She gave me the colorful bracelet I'm wearing. I rlly love it," the "Super Bass" singer captioned the shot. 

Miyah was diagnosed with Stage 3B Burkitt's lymphoma last year and has already undergone 7 chemotherapy treatments for the disease, but you could never tell from her happy, carefree demeanor!

The musician also posted a video of the youngster while she offered her some encouraging words of wisdom.

"I'm so happy that you got your pink wig," she said. "I think you're beautiful without the pink wig, OK? But whenever you want to play dress-up and feel like a little Barbie doll that's fine. But remember you promised me that you were going to stay in school."

Washington Wizards point guard John Wall initially got the dark-haired beauty's attention about Miyah's request with an Instagram video earlier in the month using the hashtags #HelpMiyahMeetNicki and #PinkWigForMiyah. 

"Fans I need your help to get my buddy Miyah's wish granted. She's a 5 year old battling cancer and her wish is to meet @NickiMinaj and get one of her pink wigs!," the basketball player wrote. 

Minaj quickly responded to the fans pleas with her own post. "Hi Miyah!!!! Let's see what we can come up with for a pretty little princess. ;)," she replied.

The rest is sweet history!
