Jason Castro Joins Little Girl’s Cancer Battle

Before Jason Castro hit the stage Wednesday night in southern Colorado to play a benefit for 9-year old Megan Phalen, who is battling leukemia, he stopped by her house to give her a private concert.

Years of chemotherapy have left her immune system weak–she’s   unable to leave her home. So Jason brought the concert to Megan, performing “Let’s Just Fall In Love” and “Hallelujah” sitting right next to her on the family’s living room couch.

From NBC 5:

Megan couldn’t control her joy spontaneously joining in on a few songs. Between songs Castro said, “It’s really an honor to be here, and it’s really nice to meet Megan. It’s cool to get to sit down sometimes and hangout with people I don’t get to do that too much so this is a special time for me.” To that Megan smiled even bigger. Through it all observers in the wings were fighting back tears.

The fundraiser, sponsored by 98.9 Magic, helped raise thousands of dollars for Megan’s bone marrow transplant.
