Yahoo Contributor Network

Organizations like Make-A-Wish help make dreams come true for children and teens who suffer from terminal illnesses. For many of these individuals, their one wish is to meet the cast of their favorite TV shows. If you needed another reason to love your favorite TV stars, consider these TV personalities, who all took time make the dreams come true for their fans.

The cast of "Psych"

Just this week, a Reddit post went viral. The poster, GhostGlide, has a friend who was recently diagnosed with leukemia. His friend's wish: meet the cast of USA's crime comedy "Psych."

The pictures are worth checking out. After getting kissed by Maggie Lawson, the cancer patient also got comedy kisses from James Roday, Timothy Omundson, and Dulé Hill. It looks like the patient had a great time.

The cast of "The Office"

A 16-year-old girl from North Carolina named Anna suffered from hypoplasia, a medical condition affecting the development of her arms and legs. Through Make-A-Wish, Anna got a chance to visit the set of "The Office." She apparently got along really well with B. J. Novak, and was also spotted hanging out with Oscar Nunez, Jenna Fischer, Brian Baumgartner, John Krasinski, and Angela Kinsey.

The cast of "One Tree Hill"

Back in 2006, a 17-year-old high school student named Adriana Figueroa was given the chance to meet the cast of "One Tree Hill." Shockingly, despite her young age, Adriana was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, which usually affects much older people. After Make-A-Wish told Adriana to dream big, she asked to meet the cast of the show.

She traveled from Arizona to North Carolina to meet the cast. Sadly, Sophia Bush couldn't be there but made it up to Adriana by wearing a bracelet that the cancer-stricken teen made for her during the filming of an episode.

The cast of "The Pauly D Project"

During the filming of one episode of his self-titled TV show, DJ Pauly D took some time to visit a 15-year-old boy suffering from cancer. Organized by the group A Wish Come True, Pauly D visited the patient, Derick, in his home. The two bonded over a shared love of music, and Pauly D was stunned when he learned that Derick would have 30 weeks of chemo ahead of him.

The cast of "Pit Boss"

Animal Planet's one and only Pit Boss, Shorty Rossi, went to extraordinary lengths to make a cancer patient's wish come true. The patient, Emma, found comfort in her family's pit bull during her illness, which is why she wanted to meet Shorty. The encounter was filmed for the Season 4 premiere of the program.
