The fan that Lady Gaga met with and cheered on during her fight with cancer has died, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.
Noelle met Lady Gaga in September when the Dream Foundation arranged for her to go backstage at one of her concerts. She lost her battle with leukemia on New Year’s Day RadarOnline.com has confirmed.
Lady Gaga not only met with Noelle backstage at her concert, she gave her a pair of her own black studded heels.
“These are your Chemo shoes!” exclaimed Lady Gaga. “Next time you have to go to Chemo, walk in there wearing these and remember your are a superstar. No illness can take your inner-beauty or your spirit of life away. You are beautiful!"
The Poker Face singer then signed the bottom of the shoes before giving Noelle a big hug. She shared her own words of wisdom with Noelle. “They may say you are sick, but all I feel is how alive your spirit is. Listen to yourself and believe in your will. I want you leaving here loving yourself more than you love me. You are so beautiful.”
The Dream Foundation arranged the meeting, and Thomas W. Rollerson wrote about the experience. “Noelle’s eyes widened with excitement as Lady Gaga herself entered private waiting room to visit her. She had just danced and sang her booty off for two hours and now she was giving her time to Noelle. And time she gave. Having witnessed many meet and greets, I was thrilled that Lady Gaga shared with me the sense that there was no greater place to be than with Noelle in that moment."
