Music has been cathartic for Jose as he has battled kidney disease. Getting lost in the tunes of his favorite bands has allowed him to dream of being a rock star and connect physically with the driving beat of the rhythmic drums. Jose thought his rock dreams would never be closer than that. He didn't know he'd meet an amazing rock star and that it'd be himself!
When community members and business owners heard about Jose's wish, the offer to help was immediate. They knew they could make this wish kid's experience extra special. From the professionally designed drum set by SJC Drums to the personal delivery of the set to hosting Jose and his family for his wish reveal at Magnolia Plantation & Gardens in Charleston, these wish heroes, made Jose's wish experience more than he could have hoped for.
Before long, the lights were set, he had his cap on and was rocking under the bright lights. Jose realized, that the rock star had been inside him all along. After a great jam session and posing for band photos with his family, Jose felt confident that his dream of being a professional drummer is not out of reach. He has hope for his future and will never stop dreaming big.
We salute our community members who make wishes happen for kids like Jose.
