AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - Popular country singer Miranda Lambert made one Canyon girl's wish come true after she sent her a video telling her to stay "Texas strong" in her battle with cancer.

In the video, Lambert tells Tatum Schulte her thoughts and prayers are with her, and she is "tough and brave, just like Texas girls should be."

Since 2015, Tatum has battled osteosarcoma in her leg and spine.

After becoming ill before a planned surgery recently, she was placed on hospice. Team Tatum reports that she has had more good days than bad and encourages everyone to pray for her to remain comfortable and for a miracle.
