Young boy battling cancer skypes with Steven Tyler
UNDATED (WHDH) -- It was a wish-come-true for a little boy battling cancer; he got to sing with Steven Tyler.
Not only did the 7-year-old boy from Warwick skype with the Aerosmith front man, he also got a shout out on national television.
Tyler took some time out to spend a moment with Cole Grace, who dressed up in Aerosmith gear for the occasion.
Cole has an aggressive form of brain cancer. As he rested in the hospital, he had a wish.
“I wanted to sing ‘Walk This Way,’” Cole said.
“When he said that I asked, ‘why do you want to talk to Steven Tyler?’ and he said, ‘Cause I want to sing Walk This Way with him,’” said Cole’s mother said.
So Tyler made a wish come true on Skype.
“They were singing it together and like when Steven Tyler said, ‘Walk This Way,’ he'd get closer and closer to the camera,” said a family member.
Cole is now home, resting from three surgeries.
During a recent episode of American Idol, Steven Tyler said hello to his new friend and Cole said that moment was "pretty awesome."
