Her wish came true much sooner than expected and messages on her GoFundMe page note that surgery went well, leaving her with a strong new heart. Drake heard about the good news and congratulated Sofia with love and well-wishes.

“Sofia, if they get this clip out to you, I love you and I’m happy for you!” We're not crying... just allergies.
