Client Testimonial

My daughter Julia was diagnosed with Niemann Pick Disease type C.  She became interested in country music and the artist named Kip Moore. Julia was so excited leading up to the concert. It made her so happy to be able to meet Kip backstage before the concert. Now she tells everyone about her experience meeting Kip, it has been a highlight of her life. I would definitely recommend A Second Wish for Demetrius to anyone in a similar situation. The communication throughout the process was wonderful and they were so caring. They made my daughter's dream come true and I appreciate it beyond words.
