Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

PEORIA (HOI) - Steve Gray from Pontiac is fighting against three types of cancer. Back in November we shared his story about his love for the legendary rock band KISS. Front man Gene Simmons sent a heartfelt message to Gray encouraging him to keep fighting.

Flash forward to Saturday night, and KISS was in Peoria at the Civic Center for a concert. Stars aligned and Steve's wish came true as he was able to see the concert from the 3rd row, and some "angels" helped out and got him backstage passes to meet the band.
