Last week, Banks' family and friends started a campaign on her behalf, in an effort to reach out to Beyonce to speak with the teenager, who spent the last year in the hospital after being diagnosed with stage four cancer. After learning about Banks, Beyonce made her dream come true and contacted her via Facetime.
"I love you," Beyonce says in a short video of their conversation.
