Beyoncé gives the ultimate gift to a deserving fan.

Sunday on Instagram, Lyric Chanel — who, according to an Instagram account run by her family, is “fighting brain cancer/Anaplastic Ependymoma” and has survived four brain surgeries — received a bouquet of flowers and a note from the singer herself.

“When the Queen Bey sends you flowers,” Lyric’s post said. “Thank you so much @beyonce Lyric was so shock to get mail from you and she said Beyonce is the Best!!! We love you so much and she hopes to one day meet you.”

The “Lemonade” songstress’ gift comes days after Lyric’s IG posted a throwback video of the young girl singing the musician’s 2011 song “Love On Top.”

In her personal note, Bey said she was “moved” to see how her music has inspired Lyric through her health battle.

“Honey, Honey, I can see the stars all the way from here, I can feel the sun whenever you’re near,” Beyoncé began the note, quoting the song’s lyrics. “I was so moved to see how these lyrics inspired you, not nearly as much as you inspired me. I can’t wait to meet you one day and I’m so happy you’re home safely. You are a survivor. God bless, B.”

According to Lyric’s GoFundMe page, created in December 2018, doctors discovered her brain tumor after she suffered from headaches.

“Lyric has been such a blessing in our lives with the sweet soul of an angel. Her parents are so strong and has not asked anyone for anything however I know they are overwhelmed inside,” the organizers wrote.

The crowdsourcing page also featured a message from Lyric’s mom, thanking supporters for their kind words.

“I have felt every prayer that you all have given and what GOD has shown me during this time, I am a believer now. Thank you so much for all the love!”

As of this writing, Lyric’s GoFundMe page has raised over $76,000.
