The dedicated star powered through her chronic illness to so she wouldn't disappoint her fans.

Continually-rising, platinum-selling pop sensation Halsey isn’t one to give up easily — as evidenced by an Instagram post of hers from last week which showcases her dedication to her craft, and to her fans.

As many Halsey fans almost certainly know, the singer (government name: Ashley Nicolette Frangipane) suffers from endometriosis, a chronic medical condition that can cause inflammation and unexpected pain. Even while experiencing a particularly bad day with the condition, Halsey powered through and met with her fans ahead of a show in Oakland, even while having to stay seated with an IV in her arm.

“Didn’t think I could stand and was attached to this (annoying) IV putting fluids and medicine in my body,” Halsey wrote in an Instagram last Wednesday. “SOOOO, I invited my meet and greet group to my dressing room and asked everyone to come chill on the couch and kick it with me!” She included an inspirational message for her fans who live with similar conditions: ““It’s a reminder to everyone struggling with chronic illness that YOU GOT THIS!!!!,” she wrote. “Ur a boss go kick some ass. and if u can’t right now, that’s okay too. You’ll be kickin ass in no time.”
