Beyonce's 'get well soon' wish lifts Meadhbh

POP superstar Beyonce has given liver transplant patient Meadhbh McGivern a heart-felt boost.

Meadhbh (14), who is recovering from her life-saving operation at a London hospital, was stunned after Beyonce recorded a "get well soon" message for her.

The pop idol wished the Leitrim girl a speedy recovery on national television.

The pregnant superstar took time to pay tribute to her eager follower and send her words of encouragement.

While being interviewed by Karen Koster on TV3's Xpose in New York, the diva sent her best wishes to Meadhbh.

"I wish you good luck and hopefully I'll get to meet you one day. We'll be praying and rooting for you," she said.



Recovery

The schoolgirl's story captured the heart of the nation during the summer when a mess up by officials caused her to miss out on a liver transplant.

However, the teen finally underwent the 12-hour operation earlier this month and now, with a little help from her singing hero, is making a full recovery.

"She was amazed and thankful, we never expected anything like this," said dad Joe. "She was thrilled when she saw the clip of Beyonce."
