Client Testimonial

My daughter Julia was diagnosed back in 2011 with Niemann Pick Disease type C & in 2012 had a wish granted by the Make a Wish Foundation. It was an incredible experience. As time went on however she became interested in the music of a country artist named Kip Moore. I was lucky enough to win her tickets to one of his concerts & after seeing him in person she became a star struck super fan constantly talking about him & how she wanted to meet him. I was determined to make it happen for her & I found out about A Second Wish by Demetrius through an online search. I applied for the wish for her through a Second Wish & was thrilled when they said they would try & make it happen for her. As luck would have it I heard on the radio that Kip was coming to our hometown to do an acoustic concert put on by a local radio station. I let Sharon know & she contacted the radio station & made everything come together. 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 & they were so caring. They made my daughters dream come true & I appreciate it beyond words.
