Britney Spears' 'Toxic' Once Helped A Young Girl Recover From A Stroke

Britney Spears' 2003 hit “Toxic” was a life-changing addition to pop music.

However, for 13-year-old Maegan Johnson from Phenix City, Alabama, the song impacted her life in a truly amazing way.

When she was just 7 years old, an aneurysm in her brain ruptured after suffering a stroke during a 10-hour surgery.

As a result, her left side was impaired, leaving her unable to speak for over a month.

One day, when someone put on a CD for her, she heard “Toxic,” and it immediately inspired her to dance and smile. From then on, the song played in every one of Maegan's therapy sessions.

In fact, in a Facebook post, Maegan wrote she wants Britney Spears to know just how much the song helped in her recovery.

And since Britney is probably the nicest pop star out there, she responded with an incredibly kind message.

I guess "Toxic" by Britney Spears is even better than I thought.
