Terminally Ill Teen Meets His Idol

Posted:
 DECATUR- A 16-year-old with brain cancer got the visit of his life.  Doctors say Silas Martin is nearing the end of his life.  But on Monday, one of his wishes came true: his favorite celebrity paid him a visit in his home.
    You could say Silas is a big fan of food in general, which is why it makes sense that Adam Richman, of man versus Food fame is his hero.
    Richman flew in to see Silas, not on behalf of any organization, but because Silas's friends flocked to social media to ask Richman to come.
    The TV star was surprised to find that Silas had memorized some of his recipes and even asked about the size of the onion he uses to make chicken soup.
    "I'm very lucky and very honored and very fortunate that I'm someone he wanted to meet because he's an extraordinary person,"Richman says.
    More than just talking about food they got to eat some.  They got to enjoy Silas's favorite pizza from Donnie's.
    Richman was the host of Man v. Food on the Travel Channel from 2010-2012.  He is also an author and actor.
