Get ready for a kick right in the feels.

Jeremiah Succar, a 7-year-old patient at Children's Hospital Los Angeles, has stage-four atypical rhabdoid teratoid, an aggressive tumor that occurs in the brain and spinal cord.

He loves Rachel Platten's 'Fight Song,' and sings it when he goes through treatments. When his parents found out about this, they knew they had to get the singer to come visit him.

"Jeremiah loves "Fight Song"β€”he memorized the lyrics after three or four times of listening to it," says Jerry Succar, Jeremiah's father. "He used to sing it when he got a lot of headaches, but now he sings it in the morning, before bed and during shots he has to get."

His parents sprung into action on Instagram using the hashtag #RachelMeetJeremiah.

Rachel got word of the movement, paid Jeremiah a visit and recorded these beautiful videos. Way to go, Rachel!

Jordan is a little boy who is fighting some really big diseases and received a much-deserved pick-me-up when one of his favorite singers, Taylor Swift, visited him in his hospital room.

Swift stopped by Boston Children's Hospital with a song and a hug for little Jordan. The joy he has when the pop star begins to play is something that will warm any heart. Way to go, Taylor!

"Dan's Our Man" has become the recent slogan of support for a man battling astrocytoma. a form of cancer that develops on the spine. Friends, family and complete strangers have been adding the battle cry to Danny Hammond's Facebook page since it was created last week. While all of the support is greatly admirable, it's Bale's photo with the message: "To a real superhero!" that really sticks out!

From the video description:

Zach Sobiech is 17 years old and diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer that takes the lives of a large percent of its childhood victims. Given only months to live, Zach turned to music to say goodbye. His song "Clouds" spread, and soon, Zach's message was heard across the country. We wanted to help Zach spread his message, and bring awareness to increase support for finding a cure. So, we asked our friends to help out...they did.
