According to KARE 11 a young Cancer patient from Michigan had looked up "Nicest Celebrities" and Mark Wahlberg was one of the names that came up, so he decided to try and meet him at the opening of 'Wahlburgers' at the Mall of America.

17-year-old Liam Fairbanks was diagnosed with Brain Cancer last Fall which was a huge shock to his family who had no history of Cancer at all in their family. Liam's mom Heather said that Liam likes to do activities   like all guys his age like to do, plus taking SAT and ACT tests looking for a part time job and scheduling around his chemo treatments.

Through it all Liam has tried to plan activities that will be fun and exciting to help keep his spirits up. His wish to meet Mark Wahlberg was made possible by Michigan- based 'The Rainbow Connection'. The Wahlburgers/Mall of America is the first in the state of Minnesota and by the size of the crowd at the grand opening I am sure it will continue to be a huge success. I am a huge fan of the T.V. show Wahlburgers and can't wait to try some of their food.
