Surprise phone call by Dolly Parton fulfills cancer patient's dying wish

 December 29, 2023

Dolly Parton, a superstar in the country music industry, fulfilled the wish of a long-time fan by calling and having a talk with the fan.

It is well known that Dolly Parton holds a very special place in her heart for her devoted followers, as Fox News reported.

The country music superstar, who is 77 years old, supported him in achieving a desire that was on his bucket list when he received a phone call from LeGrand Gold (LG). Gold was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer in November 2021.

"I'm just happy to know I've got a fan that devoted, and that I've had a chance to walk that journey all these years with you," Parton said. "Hey LG, it's Dolly P."

The "Jolene" singer-songwriter added, "I've heard you've been a fan of mine for many years, and I just wanted to thank you for that."

"It's my honor," Gold replied.

Gold's List

Over a year ago, LG and his wife, Alice, drew up "LG's List of Living" on a napkin. The list consisted of ten activities that were on their bucket list that they wanted to complete. Apparently, "Meet Dolly Parton" was ranked seventh on the list, as reported by KSL-TV.

"I'm just happy that we got to kind of have our journey together in this lifetime," Parton told LG over the phone. "I always want to make people happy with my music and with the things I do and the things I say, and I'm just happy to know that I've touched your life in some way. So, thank you for honoring me with that."

"You've been a huge help, especially these past two years," Alice told Dolly as LG smiled. "We love you for so many reasons, Dolly."

"Well, I hope all of you have a good holiday season. I guess if you ain't feeling too good, it won't be as good as it ought to be, but I just hope this lifts your spirits a little bit," Parton said. "Thank you for letting me be your traveling companion, and I'll continue to travel on with you."

Alice commended Parton for her contributions to the field as well as her Imagination Library initiative, which distributes complimentary books to children across the nation in support of children's literacy.

The initiative distributes, on average, two million complimentary books per month to children under the age of five, in response to their monthly requests. Parton concluded the visit by relating a unique anecdote.

"Just know that I will always love you. I should have sung that, shouldn't I?" she said.

"Well, I will always love you. Well, I will always love LG … " Parton sang.

"Best Christmas ever," Alice said.
