A critically ill 12-year-old Seattle girl was able to forget her worries at a Jonas Brothers concert, thanks to a mystery donor.
For the last five months, Jessica Walker has been at Seattle Children's Hospital, battling a brain tumor. She's had 20 operations, and with each procedure, she loses of bit of herself. She can no longer walk, speak or move. And those around her watch helplessly.
But thanks to that donor, Jessica and her family watched the Jonas Brothers perform Sunday night at the Tacoma Dome. It took some work to get Jessica there, but her parents say it was well worth the effort. Jessica's eyes described what her voice and body cannot.
"Seeing her smile and her eyes just going huge — it's like we're getting a piece of our Jessica back," said Cheryl Walker, Jessica's mother.
"We really didn't know and think Jessica would ever be able to anything like this — go to the concert. This is huge," said Scott Walker, Jessica's father.
Not only did Jessica take in the concert, she also got to meet the Jonas Brothers before and after the show.
"She wants the Jonas Brothers to see her for who she is, so she's not wearing a wig," said Cheryl Walker.
Her parents say this was just what the doctor ordered.
"This is huge, it really is," said her mother.
