Efrain Cuessy has not had an easy few years. The now 18-year-old has been battling Lymphoma and undergoing chemo for quite some time now. Cuessy was so sick, he received a wish from The Make A Wish Foundation. It didn't take the young EDM fan much time to decide he wanted the chance to go B2B with his all-time favorite DJ, Kaskade.
Kaskade's team heard the request for the wish and told Efrain to keep his wish, and they would coordinate the experience entirely themselves. Sure enough, Cuessy was lucky enough to party with Kaskade, celebrating now only his birthday, but also his cancer-free diagnosis.
To say that Kaskade is truly one of the most incredible people in the dance music industry would be a massive understatement. Check out pictures from the private party below.

01-31-2019 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. I posted my story on the @kaskadekonnect FB page, and @jodicall reached out to me about it. She told me to save that wish and that Ryan would come. I didn’t know how to react. My idol was coming to my house. How can you react to that?! I told my parents, and they laughed. I can’t blame them, I couldn’t believe it either. As I went through my rounds of chemo., Jodi kept in touch with me, letting me know that this was indeed going to happen. Time went on, and it all started piecing together. @mattmiera , @brycewilliamtennison , and @sammmetz got in on the project and started getting it all ready. Then it happened. 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. From the bottom of my heart, thank you @kaskade . Thank you @jodicall for setting it up. Thank you @sammmetz for being my second mom and best friend. Thank you @mattmiera for assisting with the planning and @brycewilliamtennison for helping with the sound (also s/o to Sean and his team). Everyone really made this night one I won’t forget. Thank you for this. Llove, Efrain Cuessy
