DUBLIN, Ireland -- When Shane MacGowan lurches into the Morrison hotel on a recent Thursday afternoon, clutching a cocktail, half the people in the lobby begin to breathe again. The famously damaged frontman for the Irish folk-punk band the Pogues is usually late by several hours, but MacGowan was delayed overnight by emergency surgery on an abscess under one of his few remaining, rotted teeth. In four hours he and the band are scheduled to arrive on the red carpet at the Meteor Ireland Music Awards, the country's equivalent of the Grammys, where the Pogues will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award.

In 1999, Caryn Jaffe "C.J." Texler was working as a nurse in an upstate New York hospital. One of her patients was Shane Sullivan, a 9-year-old boy with leukemia and a perfectly healthy sense of humor. Shane's idea of fun (pulled off with a little help from his parents) was to surreptitiously empty his I.V. drip bag and refill it with tap water, plus a live goldfish. Texler, who has a fish phobia, loved the joke and the joker. "That was the night I knew I had to do something for him," she says.
