Adam Sandler Invites Young Cancer Patient to ‘Grown Ups 2’ Set

Angela Daniels, a 12-year-old girl from New Jersey, has been turning to Adam Sandler’s comedies over the past few months to keep up her spirits while undergoing radiation and chemotherapy treatments.

The young girl is suffering from ependymoma, a brain tumor that arises from the central nervous system and Stage Three brain cancer. During the process of undergoing 33 radiation treatments and three bouts of chemotherapy, Daniels has watched several Adam Sandler movies, including “Billy Madison” and “Big Daddy”.

According to nj.com, Martino Cartier, a Washington Township hairdresser and founder of FriendsAreByYourSide.com, created a video of Daniels talking about her love for Sandler and the many reasons why she wanted to meet him. He posted the video to Sandler’s Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube, and within days received a response from Sandler’s staff inviting Daniels to visit the set of “Grown Ups 2” in Boston.

Angela Daniels, her mother Jennifer, and Cartier visited Sandler for an entire day on the set.

“We went to the hotel, and then we went and saw Adam Sandler and everything,” Angela told nj.com. “It was really cool. I hung out with him and played tennis with him and his kids.”

“It was great. They were very welcoming. He was very nice and down to earth,” said Jennifer Daniels. “She was so excited. She was shaking when she saw him walking toward her.”

Daniels returned home to face a fourth and final chemotherapy treatment, but her visit with Sandler “brightens her spirits,” said Jennifer.
