Cancer patient from Osage garners strength from Garth Brooks

Posted: Updated:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- A woman battling breast cancer has been given a gift she won't soon forget while attending a Garth Brooks' concert in the Twin Cities over the weekend.

Teresa Shaw and her daughter traveled from Iowa to see Brooks' show in Minneapolis last Friday. Shaw brought a sign that read "Chemo this morning. Garth tonight. Enjoy the dance."

And it was during Brooks' hit song "The Dance" that Shaw found herself front and center, next to the stage. Brooks walked over and started singing to her, then handed her his guitar and kissed her on the forehead.

KARE-TV says the performer took Shaw's sign and held it up for the audience, telling her that he and everyone in the audience were sending her strength to beat her cancer.
