Beyonce has sent condolences to the grieving family of fan Chelsea James, who lost her battle with cancer last week (ends25Apr14).

The Halo hitmaker brought the ailing youngster onstage and sang to her during a concert in Sydney, Australia in 2009. She then met her fan again backstage at a gig in October (13). James died last week at the age of 15, after a battle with cancer that lasted more than a decade.

Beyonce got in touch with her mother Donna by sending her a vase filled with 90 white roses and a handwritten note. The note reads, "Donna, love and prayers to you and your family. Chelsea was a beautiful girl and I am so happy I was able to meet her. She touched my heart and I will never forget her."
