According to the Children’s Hospital of Nevada’s Facebook, last week, one of their patients, Dilan Kohn got his final wish.
The Cystic Fibrosis 17-year-old boy desperately wanted to meet and hang out with Gene Simmons from the band “KISS”. Mr. Simmons had not only been Dilan’s idol, but also his inspiration growing up.
After receiving an email request to come meet Dilan, Gene Simmons flew into Vegas the next morning and showed up with a big bag full of signed memorabilia just for Dilan.
The two hung out, shared stories and laughed together for well over an hour while staff looked on with tears in their eyes.
Unfortunately Dilan passed away peacefully a couple days later.
