All a Connecticut woman with an aggressive form of breast cancer wants for Christmas is you, Mariah Carey.

Larissa Podermanski, 30, of Berlin, said she had just settled into a home she bought with her fiance last year when she learned her diagnosis.

She said along with planning a wedding and thinking about starting a family, Podermanski had to hear how she had stage 2 breast cancer.

Fast forward eight months and the news grew worse.

Doctors said Podermanski's condition worsened into stage 4 metastatic breast cancer, a form they called quite aggressive.

Knowing the uphill battle she faced, she, her friends and her nurses sought a little inspiration from pop icon Mariah Carey.

They put together a video of them singing Carey's holiday hit "All I Want For Christmas Is You" in hopes of getting the singer's attention.

Check out the video here.

Friends told Eyewitness News that it's been Podermanski's dream to meet Carey. She's hoping her video will go viral to make that happen.

There's no word yet on a response from Carey.

Podermanski set up a GoFundMe account to aid in her cancer struggle. It can be found here.

If Mariah Carey wants to get in touch with Podermanski, she can reach out on Facebook at @larissa.ellen.547.
