In A Touching Moment, Adam Levine Meets 10-Year-Old Fan Battling Cancer, Dedicates Song To Her
By Sydney Zuelke
While Maroon 5's Sacramento performance was a sugar-sweet night for all, the band made sure to make it an extra memorable experience for a special fan in attendance.
Ten-year-old Addison Crory was diagnosed with leukemia earlier this year. While the Roseville native spends many days as a patient, she got to enjoy Saturday night as a normal kid.
After catching the attention of an ambulance company on social media, Addison was given tickets for her and a few friends to see Maroon 5 right here at Golden 1 Center. She decided to invite her friend Melanie, a 13-year-old battling kidney cancer and receiving treatment at the same hospital as Addison. "She deserves to have fun too," Addison told Fox40.
On the night before the show, Brandy Salazar, a family friend of the Crory's, began sharing videos on social media, in attempt to make the little girls' night even more special.
Overnight, magic happened. Addison and her friends were going to meet Adam Levine.
The excitement didn't stop there. As the show neared its end, Adam made sure to dedicate his breakout ballad "She Will Be Loved" to his new friend, Addison.

Addison's mother, Chris Crory, explained to Fox40 that her daughter has had "such a hard time," but Saturday, as she awaited to see Adam, "she was so excited and full of life."
“At the worst, most horrible, hard, difficult time of our life," she continued, "to have something like this happen and people we don't even know come out of the woodwork and just help us, it's just for her, it's amazing."
