CNN PRODUCER NOTE At nine years old, Stephanie Wilson met Robin Williams while at camp. But this wasn't an ordinary camp for kids. At that time, Wilson was coping with her diagnosis of Von Willebrand disease, a hereditary bleeding disorder. In 1999, she attended The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp in Ashford, Connecticut, a camp started by actor Paul Newman for children coping with serious illnesses. Robin Williams and other celebrity guests came to a fundraising gala at the camp and performed alongside the kids. "He was hilarious. He had all these great facial expressions, and he had all these hand movements. He made everyone laugh," she remembered. Wilson was deeply saddened by William's death. "I wish he had known how much we appreciated him," she said. "Not all celebrities go out of their way to help out people. It takes a special person to donate their time to helping others."
