Big Time Rush’s Logan Henderson on Losing Fan to Cancer: ‘It’s a Blessing for Jane to Have Included Us in Her Life’ (EXCLUSIVE)
“It’s a blessing for Jane to have included us in her life!” Logan Henderson told Celebuzz this weekend.
Jane, 8, had been battling leukemia for more than one year before doctors advised her mother that treatment was no longer an option. The boys were planning to surprise their young fan at her home on Sept. 10.
What else did Logan have to say on behalf of BTR?
“I hope that our message to Jane gave her hope and happiness. My love goes out to Jane’s family during this difficult time,” Henderson told us.
Last week, Big Time Rush, along with Kendall Schmidt’s brothers Kevin and Kenneth, recorded a special video for Jane as she was too fragile to travel at the time.
“The boys and I never got a chance to meet Jane Fiemeyer in person, and we are deeply saddened to hear that she has passed away,” Kendall told Celebuzz on Thursday.
“We, together with The Make A Wish Foundation, were right in the middle of planning a trip to meet Jane in person, but the universe had other, even greater plans that took her from us all way ahead of her time,” he added.
Also on Thursday, Carlos Pena Jr. took to Twitter to pay tribute to his young fan:
My heart and prayers go out to The Fiemeyer family.We are here for u Wish I could of met little Jane. Her story will inspire me for ever <3
