Phillips wears bracelet for local cancer patient
"I'm 27 and in February I was diagnosed with breast cancer."
Meet Brittany Stalvey, a married mother of one who noticed something was amiss in the mirror one day.
Before she knew it, Stalvey was another person added to the growing list of those with breast cancer.
"I think it's just important to know that at 27 it can happen. Breast cancer is not something that happens when you're 50 or 60 anymore, it happens when you're young. At 27, I never would have thought. I never would have thought."
Luckily Stalvey has a strong network of support, including her 4-year-old daughter, Mayson, who has been nothing but mommy's helper.
"I help to clean up the room, my room, and I did everything for her."
Stalvey has also had the help of close friends who not only organized a team, supporting Brittany, for the recent Relay for Life, but also created bracelets to help raise money for her medical bills.
Brittany's journey has been a struggle but it's brought everyone together in her family and gained the attention of a certain individual.
"Phillip Phillips!" answered Mayson when asked who she gave a bracelet to.
During Saturday's concert, Mayson was able to personally hand Phillips one of the black and white bracelets which he graciously accepted.
"It's really neat to see how humble he is and how he didn't just take it and put it in his pocket or just hand it off to somebody, that he actually took the time to put it on himself and glance at it and take that extra step," said Stalvey.
An extra step that gave Mayson an amazing story to tell, with pictures to back it up.
"I wanted to give it to him and he just grabbed it," said an excited Mayson.
