Cancer Takes a Holiday

Children usually suffer the most when a parent is diagnosed with terminal cancer. So Jack & Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation gives the family a break, providing them a chance to have wonderful memories together in luxurious surroundings while the parent is still well enough to enjoy the experience. In November, the Wilson family of Nashville was given that once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, staying in the VIP Suite at the posh Renaissance Hotel in Hollywood and attending the American Music Awards in Los Angeles. They talk to CNN's Don Lemon about what the trip meant for their family, and for the first time meet Jon Albert, the man whose foundation made the trip possible.
