20-year old Anthony Harrison is a cancer patient. He went for a bone-marrow transplant but the operation failed and now, he has been told by the doctors that there’s not much that they can do anymore. So he has a few days, perhaps months to live and is on the verge of death. So Anthony has created a bucket list on YouTube which includes, among other things, meeting his ‘celebrity idol’ Katy Perry.
As soon as the video from Anthony reached social media, it has gone viral. A certain group of Katy Perry dedicated fans, called ‘Katy Kats’, have started sharing and resharing the video on the social media.
A number of blogs dedicated to Katy Perry have also shared the video and are actively encouraging their readers as well as fellow fans to share the video so much so that Perry eventually watches the video and Harrison can realize his dream of meeting her.

Some have tried asking the question as to whether or not the video is authentic. A Reddit user, actively sharing the video, responded, “If he’s real, he’ll appreciate the support. If he’s fake, we’ll leave that to 4Chan.”
Currently the whole campaign has been launched under the hashtag #KatyMeetAnthony. Fans of Perry and supporters of Harrison are actively working on the campaign and who knows Harrison may be able to meet Perry after all.
