They have a great fanbase who really believes in them, there's absolutely no reason to say that. Especially in an article about him trying to be there for a fan, who most of all wants to meet him. That says something about him, and his fanbase.
I would definitely agree, they are arguably the biggest band signed to rise right now and their fans follow them like crazy but it is primarily teenage to early 00s girls who probably don't want to move at all at a show, ya thats not a requirement for a good fanbase, but thats just me, I mean I did say its awesome that they did this, nothing against the fanbase as people, just as concert goers I guess

Well said. As a cancer survivor it's tough to read stories like this. I have a lot of respect for Kellin for reaching out. There was a similar story this week about Matt Kemp of the Dodgers giving his jersey to a terminally ill cancer patient. It's nice to see people doing what they can to bring any sort of happiness to these heart breaking situations.

It always makes me both sad and happy reading stuff like this. Kellin seems like a solid dude so I'm sure he will make it happen for the girl.

According to the Reddit page via the official Facebook page for this cause, Kellin can't see her because of touring conflicts, but he is going to Skype with her. I'm sure the Internet will find a way around this issue :3

I would still make the meeting happen if I were Kellin. These bands talk of changing people's lives and this is exactly life changing for the girl.

Reddit continues to surprise and impress me more with every headline they make.
Yeah. Especially the ones where they create whole subreddits devoted to voyeurism and child porn (FREE SPEECH BRO!!!!) and go on terrorism witchhunts that wind up with people killing themselves.

Stuff like this is clearly cool, but don't make the site any less of a colossal shithole. I mean, its a large enough site that clearly there are good people who do good things on it, but the bad stuff kinda ruins it all for me. (did I leave out the part where half the content on the site is full of blatant sexism and homophobia? Its like 4chan, except everyone on 4chan knows they were terrible people where everyone on reddit thinks they are good because somehow stuff like this makes up for saying "OP IS A F__")

Kellin responded to a tweet about this asking how they can set it up. Would almost guarantee this happens.

Minus that whole "accusing the wrong guy of being a terrorist" thing ... I agree. Cool site, which is surprising when a community gets THAT big that it isn't just YouTube comments.
I was watching the live update thread in the middle of the night when all of that was going down, and listening to the police scanner and the Boston Police Commissioner, Ed Davis tweeted that the identities of the bombers was confirmed to be Sunil Tiripathi and another guy (last name started with an M). The live update thread used that tweet as a source otherwise it would have never caught on as much. He later deleted the tweet but the witch hunt for reddit was already on.

Reddit did nothing.
Her friends put it out there and via the currently climate of society that caused the wish in the first place - it reached its destination.

Don't make this about Reddit when it's about a terminally ill, young girl.

Kellin is such a great guy. Got a free shirt at one of their shows because I missed their set. Also a very nice guy to talk to. I'm sure this will happen.
