Simon Cowell Has a Heart

I saw this and just had to share.

Hey folks,

Before we get into all the hard news stuff, I just have to share this. It really touched my heart, and I think it's a GREAT story. According to Pop Eater - Simon Cowell Grants Young Girl's Final Wish

Simon Cowell fulfilled five-year-old Bethany Fenton's final wish before she lost her battle with a brain tumor. She achieved her dream of singing 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star' for Cowell when she visited the 'Britain's Got Talent' studios in North London ahead of Saturday's finale on June 5 and even met some of the finalists in the competition. Following her exciting day, the young girl told UK's Daily Mail, "I loved them all, especially Kieran, who asked for my wristband to give us both luck ... Simon let me sing 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star' to him. He's so nice and I love him."

Last year, she was diagnosed with a grade three to four anaplastic astrocytoma brain tumor. A second MRI scan last year revealed the tumor had grown and began seriously affecting her.

The youngster fought the illness for over a year and had been through radiotherapy and chemotherapy. She passed away Tuesday afternoon, June 8, at the Helen House Hospice in Oxford after a sudden deterioration in her condition at home.

Following her death, Cowell's spokesman Max Clifford said, "He is really upset, he said what a beautiful little girl she was. He is just so sad, and sad for the whole family. She was a very special little girl and Simon was so touched when she sang for him. He was happy that he was able to do a special something on Saturday night to give her a few precious moments but it is so sad and his heart goes out to Bethany's mum and dad and he is thinking of them."

A spokesman for the family said the young girl was doing fine on Sunday after singing for Cowell and "was absolutely over the moon with what happened."

"Her dad said that she had done what she always wanted to do, meet Simon Cowell and sing to him. She had achieved her big ambition and was now ready to depart this earth," the spokesman said.
God Bless Simon Cowell, and God Speed Bethany Fenton. May her family have the peace and the comfort they need in this time.
