VIRGINIA BEACH -- Five days before Christmas, it's the gift that keeps on giving.

Two weeks ago, Becca Parcells got the surprise of her life when a crowd of students at First Colonial High School showered her with love, screams, posters, a Becca Barbecue from Texas Roadhouse on Battlefield Boulevard in Chesapeake, and a limo party courtesy of Icon Limousines.

Becca is battling brain cancer. Her friends are rallying to support her and show her how much she's loved.

They've been taking part in the Rachel's Challenge program -- a national program that inspires students to engage in acts of kindness at school.

The president of the Rachel's Challenge club at FC took it a step further. She asked 13News if we could contact Becca's favorite music group, The Jonas Brothers, and arrange for some kind of special interaction.

Thanks to the folks at Hollywood Records in California, Kevin Jonas called Becca, surprising her with a gift millions of teenage girls around the world could only dream of.

Since our first story aired showing Becca receiving that phone call, it's been posted on Jonas Brothers' websites and Facebook pages.  Fans from all over the world have sent Becca well wishes.

That's the chain reaction of kindness that is at the heart of Rachel's Challenge.

Now the Jonas Brothers have sent her another gift that will surprise her this Christmas -- autographed pictures, clothes, medallions, and memorabilia.

Kevin Jonas called Becca a true inspiration.

Her friends at First Colonial definitely agree.
