Teen meets Martina McBride through Make A Wish

One Wisconsin teenager had her wish fulfilled at Country Jam Friday night.

Thanks to Country Jam and the Make A Wish Foundation, 15-year-old Becca Garvey got to chat with country super star Martina McBride.

At the end of her 8th grade year, this past April, Becca was diagnosed with hotchkins lymphoma.

While battling cancer, she told the Make A Wish Foundation what a big country fan she is.

She says Martina is of course a great singer, but also a great person.

"It's just so amazing, like who gets to meet with Martina McBride and talk with her in a personal session? It was really cool."

Martina also gave Becca some gifts including a t-shirt, necklace and autographed picture.

    Becca is one of the sweetest girls you would ever meet. She has an amazing voice. Her cancer last year was a real hit to their whole family. For her to get this wish granted was a dream come true. How awesome for an artist like Martina to take the time to do this visit with her.

    What a class act that Martina is! She put on an amazing show, and by amazing I mean one of the best Ive seen! And that she met with this teen! What an amazing woman! You lip-synching pop singers could take note here...
