Chemo kept her from seeing Garth Brooks. So the singer gave her tickets when she felt better.


SOUTH BEND, Ind. (CIRCA via WSBT) -- Garth Brooks knows how to keep a promise.

When an Indiana woman battling cancer became too weak for Garth's concert at Notre Dame, he promised her tickets to a future concert.

He kept that promise over the weekend, and it's something Victoria Frederick thought would never happen.

She has terminal colon cancer that’s spreading from her liver to her lungs.

Some days are better than others, but she said that this past weekend is a memory she will carry with her forever.

Garth Brooks is back on tour with his most recent concert in St Louis. The audience was filled with people -- including Victoria Frederick.

It’s an experience she never thought possible back in October, when Garth performed at Notre Dame.

“I was just coming off of a chemo round and it was too cold for me to go,” said Frederick. “I really wanted to go but knew better. I ended up staying home.”

While home, she received a personal video from Garth himself!

He promised her tickets to his upcoming stadium tour for when she felt better. Those promised tickets were finally in Frederick's hands over the weekend.

“I was like this is really for real!” said Frederick. “It’s happening.”

All of her dreams were finally coming true -- not only seeing Garth Brooks live, but also spending time with him.

“He gave me a hug and told me he was praying for me and understood my fight was a tough one,” said Frederick.

It’s a tough fight that's been hard for both Frederick and her family, but while listening to the music and being surrounded by her husband and two kids, the stress subsided.

When Frederick's favorite song played, her husband asked to dance with her.

“It was peaceful,” said Frederick. “It was kind of comforting at the same time.”

“It was just a lot of love and just emotion there,” said Bob Frederick, Victoria’s husband.

It was a moment the two of them will cherish forever, a reminder that family will always be there, even when times are tough.

Frederick says she continues living every day to the fullest.

She doesn't know what the future holds, but she does know she's thankful her whole family had this experience together.
