Kenny Chesney Serenades Cancer Patient

Kenny Chesney unknowingly gave 14-year-old Carrington Walker, the Kansas Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's 2011 Girl of the Year, the night of her life at his recent Goin' Coastal Tour stop in Wichita.

According to KWCH-TV, the superstar randomly choose to bring Carrington onstage and then serenaded her with 'Summertime.'

"I fell asleep that night with a smile on my face," Carrington, who was diagnosed with acute lymphoma leukemia in September 2008, told the CBS-TV affiliate.

"It was amazing," Carrington gushes. "I couldn't breathe at all. I just kind of stood there."

In the heat of the moment, Carrington wasn't able to get a picture of her sharing the spotlight with Kenny, but luckily some fans stopped the two before they left the show to let them know they'd snapped their own photos and would email them to her.
