Gene Simmons helps grant young KISS fan's final wish
Note from Children's Hospital of Nevada
Last week, one of our patients, Dilan Kohn got his final wish. The critically ill 17-year old desperately wanted to meet and hang out with the infamous Gene Simmons from the band "KISS". Mr. Simmons had not only been Dilan's idol, but also his inspiration growing up. A big UMC thanks to the PICU Nursing staff along with the Child Life Specialist, Sarah Castiel, in making this wish possible. Mr. Simmons was sent an email request last Thursday afternoon and flew into Vegas the next morning. He 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. Thank you Mr. Simmon's for making this wish come true just in time. Unfortunately Dilan passed away peacefully a couple days later.
