And Thanks to an Atlanta radio show, ‘PK In The Morning,’ 17-year old Catherine Williams was given the chance to meet her favourite artist.  Back in May, Catherine was diagnosed with osteosarcoma (form of cancer that produces immature bones).  Catherine says, “I was so surprised when I first heard about it. I had no idea it was going to happen.  I’m definitely most excited about meeting him. I’ve never met somebody that famous before.”  When the radio station wanted to know who Shawn’s biggest fan was, the nurses knew exactly who to name.
