Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor recently gave a terminally ill fan named Trevor a great one-hour chat all thanks to the Living the Dream Foundation. The duo discusses everything from music to Star Wars, with Taylor telling Trevor that he really admires his attitude and fortitude.
"This is our extraordinary #DreamDay guest, Trevor. Trevor was battling terminal brain cancer at this time, and for his #DreamDay, he got to meet his favorite singer, Corey Taylor!" said Living the Dream Foundation. "Corey was so kind and generous, speaking to Trevor about Star Wars and monster trucks for over an entire hour. As the conversation progressed, you could see Trevor’s body language and energy perk up with excitement and uncontainable joy. It was a once-in-a-lifetime moment that none of us will ever forget.
"Sadly, a few weeks after their conversation, Trevor lost his battle with brain cancer. Before he passed, he was still getting out doing what he loved despite being paralyzed. Trevor fought through the pain to partake in his passions and spend time with his loved ones. We honor his life by showing the world what a strong, confident, funny, and loving guy he indeed was. Trevor’s fight inspires us all to enjoy each and every day and to live life to its fullest.
"Our hearts go out to Trevor’s family and friends for their loss. Special thanks to Corey Taylor for taking the time to make Trevor’s dream come true."
"It takes 2 seconds to make the decision to be good to someone in this world," added Taylor. "That 2 seconds can make a person’s lifetime. That is all the reward I need to do what I can for the people with LTD."
