Steven Tyler Grants Dying Man's Wish

If you weren't a Steven Tyler fan before, you will be after this.

Steven set time aside out of his busy schedule to grant a dying man's wish.

Lawrence Ori has been a lifelong fan of Aerosmith, even showing off a tattoo of the band's name on his bicep. So when Steven Tyler found out his dying wish was to meet Steven, he hopped on Skype and gave the man what he wanted.

Ori, then 62, had supernuclear palsey, a degenerative condition that made it difficult for him to talk and move. But even as a hospice patient, when "Sweet Emotion" or "Rag Doll" came on, he tapped his feet and nodded his head in time with the music.

When his condition worsened, his friends and family members surrounded his hospital bed donning black Aerosmith t-shirts. Then a call came in. Steven Tyler is calling--literally.

Lawrence? This is Steven,” Tyler said. “I’m coming to you from L.A. and I’m so glad to meet you.”

Lawrence was so shocked he couldn't speak. His girlfriend had to speak for him. She told him how much Lawrence loved the band a few stories. It was a very touching moment.

“It's so beautiful to see so much love around him right now,” said Steven. “You hold on, Lawrence. I love you man,” Tyler said. “Great to meet you.”

Lawrence passed away that afternoon. His dying wish granted.
