Young Fan Meets Bruce Springsteen In Boston

BOSTON (CBS) РA rock legend went above and beyond to make a wish come true for a young fan Monday. Bruce Springsteen was in town for a concert at the TD Garden, and made one family’s night before the show even started.

Five-year-old Carter Bernhard suffers from Spina Bifida and wanted to meet “The Boss.”

So, the Make A Wish Foundation decided to make it happen. Carter traveled to Boston in a limo, had a VIP dinner and then a meet and greet backstage. Bruce also gave Carter an autographed guitar.

The Massachusetts and Rhode Island chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.

    Isn’t it so refreshing that a multi-millionaire took time out of his schedule to meet w/someone less fortunate…we treat these people like gods…springstein should be thrilled carter took time out of his busy schedule to meet w/him

      And your cynicism improves the situation how, exactly?

      1. Hugh Carres says:

        Bruce sings ‘Baby we were born to run’ in one song.

        Jimbo’s song is ‘Baby I was born to be a schmuck!’

        Does it pretty darn well too.

      come on! For God sakes can’t we be positive in a positive situation!!! So many people do nothing to give back to the unfortunate instead of being synical look in the mirror

    I think it’s wonderful that a busy man such as Springsteen can have empathy for a little boy who is a fan. People don’t realize what a grueling schedule some of these singers have when they are on tour doing concerts. I’m sure one little boy went home very happy that day. Bruce is the boss!!!
