Sending a big MAHALO 🤙🏽 to Backstreet Boys members Nick Carter and Brian Littrell for spending part of their time in Hawaii at Kapiolani Medical Center for Women & Children. Pediatric patients enjoyed personal meet-and-greets, as well as some touching moments when Nick and Brian sang with hospitalized keiki. Watch this feel-good video for a behind-the-scenes look at how the Backstreet Boys showed their aloha spirit for Hawaii pediatric patient families. It was also an unforgettable experience for Backstreet Boys super fan and Kapiolani patient Jordan to have her favorite group at her end-of-chemotherapy bell-ringing ceremony. Both Nick and Brian celebrated her last treatment for more than two year journey with cancer. Tonight Jordan and her family will be the Backstreet Boys special guests for their final DNA World Tour concert in Hawaii. Brian shared with staff that he was born with a heart defect and received care at a Children's Miracle Network Hospitals so being at Hawaii’s only CMN hospital meant a lot to him.

It’s a joyful sound in the hospital when the end-of-chemotherapy bell is rung, followed by cheers. For Jordan, a patient at Kapiolani Medical Center for Women & Children, it was an even more special occasion as members of her favorite band, Nick Carter and Brian Littrell of the Backstreet Boys, stopped by to celebrate the end of her two-year battle with cancer.

During her many treatments, Jordan always asked to play Backstreet Boys music and considers herself a superfan. Nick and Brian were inspired by her story and provided Jordan and her family tickets to their concert.

Nick and Brian also spent time doing personal meet-and-greets with pediatric patients and performed a few songs.

They also dropped by Brain Station, an educational program at the hospital, and visited patients doing schoolwork – a special genetic DNA lesson in honor of the group’s DNA World Tour.

 

“Everybody deserves to hope in something, to believe in something,” said Brian. “We hear a lot of times that Backstreet Boys music has been the soundtrack to so many people’s lives. For us to be here physically is a testament to what we do. We’re able to give back and lift some spirits. It’s why we do it – it blesses us more than it does anybody else.”
