During the midterm election’s, President Donald Trump went through to Ohio. There he met Oliviah Hall and her family and took to the little girl.


The Cleveland resident has been battling a brain tumor for a whole year now. Trump recently surprised the little girl with a unique present which was sent straight to her doorstep.

When Oliviah Hall, 10, met President Donald Trump before they parted ways, they managed to take a picture together. Recently, US Secret Service Special Agent in Charge Jon Schuck came with a big surprise for the little girl.

He popped up at her house with a signed copy of the photograph that Hall had taken with Trump. The president inscribed the words “I love you, President Trump" on the image.

The images of Hall receiving her gifts were shared on her Facebook page, “Team Oliviah.” Last year, the 10-year-old was diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme Grade IV.


Speaking about the little girl, Schuck said: “Her personality is something else. She lights up a room.” Hall's aunt, Tina Rausch was the one who answered the call from the Secret Service about the visit.


Rausch said, “We got a call from the Secret Service. But, we didn’t know they were bringing an autographed copy of the photo we took.” Hall hasn’t only won Trump and Schuck’s hearts but also thousands of others too.


Each time the family goes to pick up their mail, they receive thousands of letters and cards. Recently, amongst the mail, Hall received something a signed copy from Carrie Underwood.


Hall’s Facebook page “Team Oliviah” revealed that she first sought out medical help on August 2, 2017. She had initially gone to her pediatrician complaining about headaches.


Her scans revealed she had a brain tumor, and she was immediately referred to the Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital for a treatment plan. A month later, Hall was made to start an aggressive radiation treatment with chemotherapy.

However, the tumor returned this year.

Last Thursday, first lady Melania Trump showed some love and care to the sick children at the Children's National Hospital in Washington D.C. The first lady brought some welcomed Christmas cheer when she read “Oliver the Ornament” to around two dozen children.

The children who were spending their holiday in the hospital also got to meet and greet the first lady.
