Jackson Rathbone to Make Cancer-Stricken Twilight Fan’s Wish Come True

By: Celebuzz / July 29, 2009

Jackson Rathbone will be doing a good deed when he heads to Dallas for TwiCon this weekend.

OK! Magazine reports that the Twilight actor, who plays Jasper Hale in the vampire series, will give a 14-year-old Twilight fan who’s struggling with terminal cancer the thrill of a lifetime.

It seems that Dorothy, the ill Twi-hard in question, has dreamed of meeting the Twilight cast since she saw the movie last year, and Rathbone will be going one better to make her dream come true.

Rathbone has invited Dorothy backstage for a performance by his band, 100 Monkeys, who’ll be playing at  the Palladium Ballroom in Dallas over TwiCon weekend.

“We’re all very lucky people and helping others makes us who we are,” Rathbone, who spent some of his formative years in Midland, Texas, says.

So kind-hearted! Especially for a grizzled Civil War veteran.
