In the Email where the Make-A-Wish-Foundation contacted him about making the video, they said "Be upbeat, and don't talk about death." and Linus said in response “This kids twelve, he's like dying of Leukemia, The last thing I could do right now was be upbeat.” The kid originally planned on making a visit to Linus Media Group but his condition was upgraded to severe and he could not leave the hospital due to him becoming heavily sick. He received an email a couple weeks prior to the live stream from the sons father, it contained a digital photo album of his son during the last part of his life, the last part of the album was dedicated to the computer they built him, Linus made up specifications for a computer and sent over the parts for him to build it, he was almost too weak to even build it, he eventually got to build it and play some games on it. A month later the sons father thanked Linus for making the last part of his sons life worth while, saying he made a big difference.[1]
