“It was amazing,” the videographer tells SurvivorNet of watching the moment, parts of which are difficult to hear over the screaming of fans.
“He does that a lot and he is involved in so many cancer charities,” adds the high school student.
Styles is seen speaking with two women in the front row and is struggling to determine who the birthday girl is and who the cancer survivor is.
He then learns it is Emily, an emergency room nurse, and throws his hands in the air before declaring: “Emily is cancer-free.”
Styles also sang “Happy Birthday” to the other young woman, who held a sign that read: “Spit on Me It’s My Birthday.”
Keep The Good Vibes Going After Cancer Battle
Emily had a good night thanks to Harry Styles. Keeping a positive attitude and continuing to do the things you love is a key part of the cancer battle.
Olympic-gold medalist and cancer survivor Shannon Miller knows that feeling all too well having battled the disease.
She previously shared some inspirational thoughts with SurvivorNet about the importance of positive people and good vibes.
“Keep those good, positive thoughts and people around you. I know it’s not easy and it’s not going to happen every day, but the more we can be positive and keep those good vibes going, the better,” Miller says.

Rock Stars Giving Back
Roger Daltrey says that the tragic death of his beloved sister inspired him and The Who to raise millions for teen cancer over the past decade.
He revealed this in an interview with Rolling Stone when asked if his commitment to raising money for teens battling the disease arose due to a personal connection.
“Sadly, my younger sister Carol, who was 32 at the time, died of breast cancer, so I saw cancer,” responds Daltry. “That was in the Eighties. That’s life, and it’s sad. The horror of it never leaves you, more than the mental anguish.”
He specifically came to support the Teenage Cancer Trust in England due to another personal connection.
“It was started by my [doctor], and we supported him from day one,” said Daltrey. “It’s such a simple thing to understand. I remember my teenage years. I was bullied very early on when I was 12, 13. Some of it’s quite painful stuff. And I thought, ‘Just imagine what it would have been like if someone had told you I had cancer at that age.'”
He continued: “Young children get cancer but don’t know the ramifications of what they’ve got. Whereas a teenager, unfortunately, knows everything. They know exactly the journey they’re going to be on. The mental strain of that must be horrendous.”
