“For many, AMC’s Walking Dead is an obsession. For 17-year-old Arthur Wear, it became a dream come true…”
So this kid, Arthur is only 17 and for months now has been fighting soft-tissue sarcoma for months, and basically watching and loving The Walking Dead in between bouts of chemo and dealing with the illness; so the New Orleans Saints’ punter, Thomas Morstead has a foundation called “What You Give Will Grow” and he basically set all this up, so that Arthur could privately meet and greet the cast of the show.
Arthur met Scott Wilson, who played the old doctor, Hershel Greene, John Berenthal, who played Shane, and Andrew West, who played Gareth in the last season. Potentially the sweetest gesture that cast members have made in a while; it’s just too bad he didn’t get to meet some of the other stars on the show as well.
