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.

Sterling’s trip was sponsored by the Canadian multimillionaire Herbert Black, the president of American Iron & Metal. The girl’s grandmother, who is a nurse, was the nurse in charge of Herbert Black many years ago when he was hospitalized. The young girl was diagnosed with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease about 10 years ago. Since then she has lost the use of both of her legs and is progressively losing her hearing. It is through Korean music and dramas that she keeps her spirits up.

She met with the members of SHINee at the SM Entertainment headquarters in Cheongdam-dong, in southern Seoul and got to spend an hour with the boys.SHINee performed her favorite song, “Ring Ding Dong” as well as some other dance routines. 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.

She will be in Korea for two weeks. During that time, she will make her way to different disability rehabilitation centers and meet other celebrities.Sterling with also be attending the 2012 “K-Pop Star Entertain Art Show” at the Kintex in Ilan, Gyeonggi which is taking place between June 23rd and August 19th.
