Travis Barker Lends Support to Ill Fan
A young cancer patient with little time left has chosen to share the last leg of his journey on Twitter - and he can count on Blink-182's Travis Barker to make the trip.

A 24-year-old-man calling himself Joseph Parker submitted a thread to Reddit (via Billboard) titled "I have Stage IV pancreatic cancer. I'm in a hospice and am going to die. Ask me anything!"

One user asked on the thread, "If one miracle could happen before you passed, what would you want?". Parker, clearly a Blink-182 fan, responded: "To have Tom DeLonge or Mark Hoppus or Travis Barker speak to me, whether through twitter or whatever it may be."

Barker learned of Parker's plight from his followers and reached out with a Tweet offering "love and prayers" and offered his services to help in any way possible.

Though Parker hasn't shared his picture and his status can't be verified, sources at Twitter Inc support the authenticity of his exchanges.
