(Radio.com) Jay-Z made one fan's holiday wish come true when he invited her onstage for a hug and a photo. On Saturday night (Dec. 16), Jay-Z was performing at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California as part of his 4:44 Tour, when he noticed a woman holding a sign that read, "I beat cancer 2x 2 see u! I love u!!! Selfie or hug?"

The rapper read the sign aloud and announced he needed to give her a hug. He invited the fan, Christina Cruz, to the stage and spoke with her for a moment before posing for several photos and giving her a big hug. "Just know, if you can beat cancer twice you can do anything," he told her.

"I thought if anything Jay-Z would acknowledge my sign and that in itself would have made me happy," Cruz told Radio.com. "But the fact he brought me on stage and the love I received from the crowd is just unreal."

Christina has beaten colon cancer twice and has been cancer free since October of 2016. Watch the touching moment here.
