Efrain Cuessy’s Make-A-Wish was for Kaskade to attend, maybe even perform at his 18th birthday party. But Kaskade and his team did him one better — he went b2b with his longtime fan!
At just 17, Cuessy was diagnosed with stage-two Hodgkin’s lymphoma. When asked about a Make-A-Wish, there was only thing he wanted: to see Kaskade perform live. He shared his story and was completely shocked when he heard back. Cuessy went through rounds of chemotherapy, all the while keeping in touch with Kaskade’s team.
Then, on his 18th birthday, his wish became a reality.
Cuessy shared the story of how it all went down via Instagram post…
I was born 18 years ago, and since the age of 12, I started listening to Ryan Raddon (a.k.a @kaskade). I heard the song “Atmosphere” and immediately got hooked on his music. I kept listening and listening, wanting to see him more and more every time. Back in August, I was diagnosed with cancer and was given a Make-A-Wish. This was it. I wanted to see Kaskade.
What happened on his 18th birthday was simply incredible…
I turned 18, and Kaskade was coming to my birthday party. I was planning on doing a little set before he went on, but as I was 3 songs in, Ryan walks in. First off, I was fan girling. Second off, he went up to me and asked if I wanted to go a little B2B with him… hold up there. Did Kaskade just ask me if I wanted to go B2B with him?! Of course I said yes, how could I not? The party went on. We danced our hearts out and had the time of our lives. It became a legendary night. One that I won’t forget, and one that I hope Ryan and everyone in attendance doesn’t.
What a dream come true. Happy belated to Cuessy and shoutout to Kaskade for being straight up amazing!
