DAVID LEE ROTH Serenades Nine-Year-Old Leukemia Patient

1010wins.com reports that a nine-year-old leukemia patient found her inspiration from the unlikeliest of places: a serenade from David Lee Roth.

The former VAN HALEN frontman recorded a song especially for Ashley Abernathy, giving the little girl the rock-star treatment in the heart-rending tune.

"Who deals the cards? Ashley Abernathy," Roth sang. "Who steals your heart? Ashley Abernathy. Ashley Abernathy makes you happy!!"

"It was just amazing, really cool, to think that a rock star would've recorded a song for me," said Ashley, who is now 15 and starting 10th grade in Gastonia, N.C. She has been in remission for almost five years.

The song was made by the Songs of Love Foundation, a Queens-based nonprofit that records personalized tunes for chronically or terminally ill children and young adults. This month, the foundation expects to reach a milestone by recording song No. 10,000.
