On Wednesday, SHINee made a fan’s dream come true. One could argue that they do this on a regular basis, but this time it was different. The fan, Donica Sterling, a 15-year old girl from New York, has a terminal illness.

They also gave her a teddy bear, their album, and some posters. Taemin presented Sterling with his prized bracelet and a heartfelt thanks. He commented, “We were extremely touched after hearing her say that our music gave her strength. Please don’t lose your courage.” Sterling presented a letter to Taemin, who is her favorite member.

The Sunday before, she met with her other favorite band, Super Junior.She was allowed to meet them on location as they filmed their new music video in Namyang, Gyeonggi.
