Briana Meets Maroon 5

January 14, 2016

Diagnosed with a life-threatening illness at two years old, Briana, now 20, has undergone 14 spinal surgeries and countless hospital stays. Despite these challenges, she’s living life to the fullest and relying on music as an important form of medicine.

“I have spent a lot of time in the hospital and during that time I would always listen to Maroon 5. It has been my dream to meet Adam Levine since I first started listening to them! He is my favorite!”

It was a very special New Year’s Eve for Briana and her family as we were able to send them to see Maroon 5 – and meet Adam Levine backstage – in Las Vegas. We’re grateful to Mandalay Bay for donating the tickets and VIP passes to this show!

“It was so awesome to see someone I’ve looked up to for so long in person and be able to give them a hug,” Briana said. “It was also so amazing to be able to thank them for making such awesome music that has always made me feel better whenever I would listen to it. I would like to thank Do it For The Love for making this possible and giving me such a memorable night with Maroon 5 on New Year’s Eve. It’s so nice to be able to have a night that takes my mind off of my medical conditions. This experience has made me want to share more love through the power of music with other people struggling with chronic illnesses.”
