However, if there’s anyone whom you’d want to ask a favor like this from, Hamill’s your man. He’s well known for his generosity towards fans and charities. And in fact, the meeting does go ahead in the end. But what happens when the actor turns up at the hospital just might renew your faith in the world of Hollywood.
