Knoxville, Tenn. (WVLT) – Two Kentucky women received a very special message from the queen of East Tennessee, Dolly Parton.
Ann Marie Davis was recently diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and her sister, Kim Daniel Rager, wanted to do something to cheer her up by reaching out to one of her favorite people: Dolly Parton.
Rager took to social media in an attempt to contact Parton to get her to sign a painting she made and give it to her sister as a gift.
Through several messages with Parton via Facebook, Rager got in touch with her. Parton couldn’t sign the painting because she’s currently working on a new Christmas movie, but she was able to send a personalized video to Rager and her sister.
Parton began the video by thanking Rager for the beautiful painting, then sent a heartfelt message to Davis.
“Thank you again for caring enough about me and painting a picture, for whatever reason, especially for Ann Marie. I’m sorry she’s sick,” Parton said in the video.
“Your sister Kim said you weren’t feeling too well and I just want to say you are feeling better!” said Parton. “I’m on a film set now. We are making a movie for Christmas. So maybe you will see it and remember it during your recovery. I’m sure you’re fine.
“It brought joy, happiness and excitement that you know is sometimes hard to find when you have cancer.” Davis said.
