An East Meadow boy with a rare disease got the VIP treatment from a world famous musician.

Justin Timberlake sent a limo Thursday to bring 12-year-old Robbie Twible to the Hammerstein Ballroom, where front row seats were waiting for him, according to New York Daily News.

Robbie has epidermolysis bullosa, a rare and debilitating skin disease with no known cure. He was still recovering from surgery during the performance but still had the time of his life, telling NYDN that the show was "amazing."

Timberlake ended the night perfectly by dedicating his last song of the night, "Mirror," to Robbie. He also got to take home bags of merchandise and hang out with the singer backstage.

Robbie has met Broadway stars, gone to Disney World, and met New York's best baseball players as he completes his bucket list. He would still like to meet Ellen DeGeneres.

Let's go Ellen. I know you are off for the summer, but fulfill this wish come September. Your pal Justin is one up on you.

What a wonderful story. I hope this inspires all people of means from entertainment, sports, and business to grant a wish to a child with an illness.
