There was surprise of a lifetime for a U.S. cancer patient recently as music star Bon Jovi crashed a family dinner for all the right reasons.
The ‘Living On A Prayer’ singer gave cancer patient Carol Cesario a moment she will never forget when he turned up for dinner at the his restaurant, JBJ Soul Kitchen in Toms River, New Jersey.
Carol’s daughter Rosie Skripkunis posted the magical moment on Facebook recently writing: “Mom’s dream came true.”
The heartwarming moment was a well-executed surprise that started a few weeks ago when Skripkunis posted a photo on Facebook that showed her mom, who’s battling stage IV lung cancer, holding a sign from her hospital bed that said, “Please share so I can meet Bon Jovi.”
It is understood the photo caught the attention of the musician, who surprised Cesario last week after her family drove to New Jersey from neighboring Pennsylvania, where they live. And although a quick hello probably would’ve been enough, Bon Jovi made their trip even more worthwhile.
“He spent almost 2 hours hanging out with her and just chatting with my family,” Skripkunis said in another Facebook post. Bon Jovi also played them his new album and gave Cesario a signed guitar and book.
“You have no idea what this meant to us. This is a day we will never forget,” Skripkunus wrote recently. “Thank you so much for these memories with our mom and her Bons.”
