“It was the only thing I wanted for Christmas,” she said.
Becky’s Christmas wish came true Friday evening when she was able to attend and even met the teenage singer-songwriter in person.
“It was so awesome,” she said.
Becky, 13, suffers from spina bifida, a birth defect that affects the backbone and spinal column.
The hospital offered additional seats for Becky’s father and sister as well as the opportunity to meet Archuleta in pre-concert session with select guests.
“We are still pinching ourselves,” Randolph said. “We can’t stop smiling.
“David Archuletta is so sweet and kind, and he was so nice to Becky.”
Archuletta wrote in an e-mail that meeting Becky was a pleasure.
“Being a patient at a hospital can be really tough especially during the holiday season,” he wrote. “Spending time with her is a simple way to help, and there is nothing like seeing the smile on her face.”
