Make-A-Wish helps ailing W-H student meet rock star hero
Liam Talbot, 17, of Hanson, a junior at Whitman-Hanson Regional High School, received a roaring send off from his classmates and staff at WHRHS on March 5, 2015.
He is the recipient of a trip to Florida through the Make-a Wish Foundation and will be traveling to there later today. Talbot, who sings and plays piano, is reportedly meeting his favorite musician, rock star Gavin DeGraw.
Talbot has chronic arsenic poisoning. He was diagnosed at age 2 after seeing 26 specialists. He credits his care and longevity to the Boston Children’s Hospital. He has been told that there is nothing doctors can do to stop the progression of the illness, which has attacked his internal organs.
