Melissa Young wants the world to know that there’s a compassionate side to Donald Trump and that he has brought a ray of sunshine to few remaining years.

Young, who was crowned Miss Wisconsin USA in 2005 and whose 7-year-old son Jack is part Mexican, attended a Trump rally in Wisconsin on Tuesday at which she shared a story about the Republican presidential hopeful.

When she was in the hospital because of an incurable nervous system disease and pregnant with Jack, he sent her a letter to boost her spirits.

“I'm here right now to thank you in person, because that is my biggest dream," she said from the crowd to Trump who listened from the stage. Until last year, Trump owned the Miss USA pageant, and Young reminding the reality TV star of their having met previously.

"Because through you and your organizations, my son, who is Mexican-American, 7 years old ... and just being able to stand on that stage with you in 2005, and the outpouring of love that came from that ultimately provided my son when he graduates high school with a full ride to college."
