Garth Brooks serenades cancer patient in Minnesota

The Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) A woman fighting breast cancer found herself front and center during a recent Garth Brooks concert in Minneapolis, when she was serenaded by the country music super star.

Teresa Shaw and her daughter traveled from Iowa to see Brooks' show in Minneapolis on Friday. Shaw brought a sign that read, "Chemo this morning. Garth tonight. Enjoy the dance."

During Brooks' hit song "The Dance," Shaw was next to the stage when Brooks walked over and started singing to her. He then handed her his guitar and kissed her on the forehead.

KARE-TV (http://kare11.tv/1uRjTvu ) reports that Brooks took Shaw's sign and held it up, telling her that he and everyone in the audience were sending her strength to beat her cancer.
