She’s known for her brilliant dance routines, and Britney’s moves have literally helped a girl learn how to walk again!

We all know Britney Spears has inspired a few copy-cat dance routines (guilty) but the princess of pop has now done something even better with her moves – she’s helped a young girl learn how to walk again!

11 Times Britney Spears Proved She Was Just Way Too Real

13-year-old Maegan Johnson shared her story on Facebook, wanting to catch Britney’s attention and thank her for her part in aiding her recovery after a brain aneurysm.

When Maegan heard Britney’s ‘Toxic’ playing, it inspired her to start trying to dance along after being confined to her bed after the bleed on her brain.

She wrote, “I am 13 years old from Phenix City, Alabama. When I was 7 I had a ruptured brain aneurysm and was airlifted to Scottish Rite Childrens Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia.

 

#justkeepdancing Ellen please read this. I am 13 years old from Phenix City, Alabama. When I was 7 I had a ruptured brain aneurysm and was airlifted to Scottish Rite Childrens Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia. The first week the doctors told my parents not to expect a good outcome. During a procedure to see how bad the bleed was, I had a stroke and it affected my left side. I had a 10 hour brain surgery, afterwards I couldnt speak for 6 weeks. I had to communicate on a dry erase board and became very depressed. I didnt want to smile or communicate. Special visitors came to the hospital like cheerleaders, clowns and dogs for therapy to cheer us up, but nothing worked. Until.... one day someone played one of my cds. The first song did nothing, but the next song was Toxic by Britney Spears-I smiled, tried moving my hips and lifting my arm waving it back and forth in the air trying to dance. That song was incorporated in ALL Therapy Sessions. It has been our hope to get my story to Britney. My parents said as an entertainer and mother, she would appreciate knowing the impact and role she played on my recovery. We have been trying for 6 years through radio stations, emails and all social media, with no luck. Hopefully with your help, my wish will finally come true. I just want to thank her and let her know how much I appreciate her and tell her my story. Thank you! With: Michele Glass Johnson and Carrie Houston Paris

Now that she’s making a remarkable recovery, Maegan hopes to catch the attention of Ellen DeGeneres to help her contact Britney about her story.

She added, “It has been our hope to get my story to Britney. My parents said as an entertainer and mother, she would appreciate knowing the impact and role she played on my recovery. We have been trying for 6 years through radio stations, emails and all social media, with no luck.
