Britney Spears has helped to make a terminally ill fan's dreams come true by flying him out to meet her during a Las Vegas concert last week.

Cory Moraw suffers from genetic disorder DiGeorge syndrome, diabetes and cirrhosis of the liver, and his health recently declined, prompting friends and family members to reach out to his favorite pop star.

They posted a message on a fundraising page in the hope of making Spears aware of her sick fan's dreams, and when they wrote, "There is only one thing in this world that Cory would feel like doing... that would be to see Britney Spears LIVE," she got in touch.

The "Toxic" singer sent the 28-year-old a first-class plane ticket to Las Vegas and arranged to meet him before her show on Aug. 19.

Moraw's mom, Janet Russom, says, "She just hugged him and she was like, 'Oh, Cory, thank you for letting me meet you'. I was like, 'That is just so cool that she said it that way...'

"It was priceless. Getting to see him that happy was just priceless. You couldn't have asked for anything better than him meeting her."
