Christie Fruits is undergoing cancer treatment, but she's not doing it alone. Her family, and most importantly, her husband James, are with her every step of the way. While he was waiting for Christie to get out of surgery, James sat at the piano in the hospital's lobby and sang "Fight on, Fighter" by for KING & COUNTRY as a way to show how much she loves her and whatever happens, he'll always have her back.

Although it's a scary time for James and Christie, their family and community have rallied behind them. They have set up a GoFundMe to help with the costs of treatment, and they've started selling #FruitsStrong T-shirts to raise money and show their support.

She's dealt with cancer not once but twice, and 16-year-old Miriam is now in palliative care, meaning her cancer is incurable. Still, Miriam always has a smile on her face and is an inspiration to others at Riley Children's Health. Part of that happiness stems from her love for the one and only superstar, Beyoncé. In fact, Miriam's last wish is for the singer to follow her back on Instagram, and we're crossing our fingers and toes that her wish comes true! If you're on social media, feel free to give Beyoncé a little nudge to check out Miriam's Instagram page! We're also so glad to hear that Miriam recently had a surgery to remove the right lower lobe of her left lung, improving her chances with chemotherapy and likely lengthening her life. You go, girl!
