Travis Barker Will Meet Josiah #josiahmeetravis

Posted by: Jason Tate (02/17/14)
Josiah is a 14 year old Australian who was diagnosed with a rare brain tumor earlier this month. His biggest dream is to meet Travis Barker of Blink-182, and after a cool social media campaign it looks like it's going to happen.

Awesome! Sad circumstances no doubt, but it's great to see the good in people come out. Like did anyone see the BatKid event a few months ago? Just fantastic.

This is a bittersweet story. But hey, always better to try and look at the positive side of things. It's really awesome for Travis to do this and the community is awesome for helping to get it where it is.

I was questioning the logistics behind this.

Yeah this is great. But he can fly now? He couldn't fly out here for Soundwave last year (not saying there is a comparison in importance between a concert and a fan's Make-A-Wish).
I remember with Soundwave he was trying to ship across but the scheduling didn't work. If he comes across on a ship just to meet this kid that's a crazy effort to go to!

if anything kicks him in the ass to get on a plain, this should be it.

stories like this are so awesome but incredibly sad, such a young kid.

It's weird to me that someone who is 14 NOW would have meeting Blink as their dream.

But that aside, this is of course awesome
