Miley Cyrus sent a terminally-ill young fan a personal video message just an hour before her death last Friday.

Caley Camarillo, who was suffering from cystic fibrosis, had long been an admirer of the “Wrecking Ball” hitmaker and even had a chance to meet her idol a few years ago while Cyrus was on tour.

Upon learning that her young fan did not have much longer to live, Cyrus recorded a video for Caley, which her mother, Teresa, posted on Facebook.com.

In the video, Cyrus says, “Hey Caley it’s Miley. I’ve been talking to your mama the past few days. I know we met a few years ago but I want to let you know that I’m still praying for you, I’m still thinking about you, I’m sending you some love, and I just want you to know that you on are on my mind and in my heart and I just wanted to send you a quick message to say hello to you.” She ended the clip by blowing a kiss to the camera.

Teresa wrote in a post on Facebook that Caley had the chance to watch the singer’s video shortly before she passed away, and lauded Cyrus’ generosity.

The devastated mom wrote, “Miley Cyrus was the very first celebrity that Caley was into and the very first celebrity she met… Miley Cyrus sent this to Caley and she was able to watch it an hour before she had passed. She managed to let out a smile. I take great comfort in this for some reason.”

Two days after the 12-year-old’s death, Cyrus took to Twitter.com to pay tribute to the young fan, stating that her Bangerz concert on Sunday in Lisbon, Portugal was dedicated to Caley.
