A Westlife superfan makes dying wish to meet Shane Filan.
Emma Clayson was diagnosed with skin cancer last year and in October was given the devastating and heartbreaking news that the cancer was terminal.
Doctors now say Emma has only weeks left, her sister Becky has taken to social media to try and make Emma’s wish of meeting Shane come true.
Emma and her sister had bought tickets for Shane’s upcoming “Right Here” tour (which starts next month.) when they went on sale last year. Sadly Emma is now not well enough to attend the show 5th March.
People have been sharing the story on social media trying to get the attention of Shane and his management team.

Shane over the years has done a lot to meet fans and help other, both him and his wife Gillian are patrons of Niamh Next Step, a charity which supports people with the childhood cancer Neuroblastoma.
CelebMix are very happy to report that it seems the positive power of social media has worked again.
Emma’s sister Becky posted an hour ago on Facebook that Shane’s manager has been in touch with the family and arrangements are being made for Emma to meet Shane.
