Toby Keith Makes a Dream Come True for One of His Youngest Fans

Toby Keith is giving back. Abigayle Fullenwider, a special needs 6-year-old, has Cerebral Palsy and she is confined to a wheelchair. She just had one dream: to meet the country star.

The girl’s grandmother Cathy Sims reached out to WOAI TV in San Antonio, Texas in hopes that they could help. The station helped arrange a meeting for the young girl and her family.

Fullenwider suffers from a startle reflex (a response to a sudden stimulus like a loud noise), so there was no way she could sit through a concert, but once Keith heard this he said he would meet them in the venue hall before the show. Toby Keith told his young fan that he “liked her wheels,” made quite an impression on the little girl. Her mom said, “He was really, really sweet and he took time to come and talk to her and take pictures. She couldn’t take her eyes off of him. She kept staring at him.” Her mom adds, “She will remember it forever.”

Keith’s two children’s charities, Ally’s House and the OK Kids Korral, help kids in Oklahoma and their families with housing while they are undergoing medical treatment.
