Benjamin Goldberg, who is five years old, suffers from cancer, but he knows all the words of Michael’s songs.
He has such a great interest in Music that his parents enrolled him in the School of Rock in Norfolk.
Following his chemotherapy he was treated like a rock Saturday at Old Dominion University’s football game with Campbell University.
Prior to the game, he walked, hand in hand, onto the field with President John Broderick. He participated in the pre-game coin toss, and ODU coach Bobby Wilder presented him with an autographed game ball.
Then, at halftime, came an unexpected treat — he was asked to lead the ODU band as it played ‘Thriller.’ To read the heart-warming report of what happened at the game, please click on this link:
