“ I am beyond amazed! This trip was once in a lifetime and it brings me to tears thinking how generous you guys are and what you have done for me. ”


- Wish Teen Brady

Adopted By: Cabela's

Brady, 19, of Oacoma, had his wish fulfilled in June when he and his family traveled to the CMA Music Festival in Nashville, Tennessee.

During his time in Nashville, Brady had the chance hear some of his favorite music groups and met a few stars!  He also met other wish kids from across the country, who were at the same event for their wish.  

Brady met several country music stars and groups including Little Big Town and Reba McEntire.  He said Reba McEntire was his favorite because she kissed him on the cheek.      

Throughout his time there, Brady attended numerous concerts and took in as many of the activities of the festival that he could.  

“I am beyond amazed!  This trip was once in a lifetime and it brings me to tears thinking how generous you guys are and what you have done for me,”  Brady said.

Brady was born with cerebral palsy and was diagnosed with severe ulcerative colitis.

His wish was made possible by Adopt-A-Wish Partner Cabela’s in Mitchell.  A special thank you to             
Make-A-Wish® America and Make-A-Wish® Middle Tennessee for helping to make Brady’s wish come true.
