Steven Tyler Grants Dying Fan's Final Wish

April 19, 2011 (11:12 am) GMT
Steven Tyler granted a dying fan's final wish by setting up a video call with the man just hours before he passed away.

Longtime devotee Lawrence Ori, who suffered from a degenerative condition called supernuclear palsy, had always wanted to meet the band's frontman, , and his dream came true when Tyler called him at his hospice via Skype earlier this month and spoke to him over a computer screen.

Ori's condition rendered him unable to speak or move, but he was able to listen as the singer told him, "Lawrence? This is Steven. I'm coming to you from L.A. and I'm so glad to meet you."

The singer ended the call by saying, "You hold on, Lawrence. I love you man. Great to meet you."

Ori sadly passed away just hours after Tyler's phone call, which was set up by the Passages Hospice Dream Foundation, a charity dedicated to fulfilling the final wishes of hospice patients.
