(Newser) – Pennsylvania teenager Lily Jordan had to miss the Jonas Brothers' concert in Hershey on Saturday night because she was in the hospital for chemotherapy treatment. So they came to her instead. The brothers paid the 16-year-old a surprise visit before the concert after fans tagged the band in her social media posts to get their attention, CBS reports. "I was supposed to be at your Hershey concert tomorrow but instead I'm across the street doing chemo," Lily wrote in an Instagram post. "If y'all wanted to pop in I'll give you my room number." Nick, Joe, and Kevin Jonas showed up Penn State Children's Hospital along with Nick's wife, Priyanka Chopra.

"We saw your messages, we had to come over," Joe said in a video shared by the Milton S. Hershey Medical Center. After they chatted for a while, Nick asked whether she had a favorite song they could dedicate to her at that night's concert and Lily decided on "SOS," People reports. Lily shared photos of the visit in another Instagram post, thanking the band and all her supporters. "Wow. The power of social media you guys," she wrote. "YOU did this. YOU made my crappy chemo session into something incredibly special and unforgettable." (Read more Jonas Brothers stories.)
