“With the generous support of partners like Chris Brown and The Symphonic Love Foundation, we are able to make a difference in the lives of tens of thousands of children every year,” said Anna Lanzatella, Executive Director of the Kids Wish Network.

For his wish, Kids Wish Network arranged an all expenses paid trip to Rutherford, New Jersey so Mohamed could meet Chris Brown during his performance at Summer Jam. During the meeting, Chris told Mohamed to follow his dreams no matter what obstacles he faces, and that is exactly what Mohamed intends to do.  Inspiring video of their meeting is here.

Shortly after his visit with Chris, Mo graduated from high school. Chris tweeted congratulations to Mo “S/O to @MoHerezy graduating High School today! Don’t let anything stand in the way of your dreams.”   In another post last week, Chris wished Mo a happy 18th birthday “Happy Bday and every day @MoHerezy! Keep inspiring positivity brother.”

“This was the first time in my life that I have seen my son happy. I felt like they had known each other forever,” said Naglaa Eid, Mohamed’s mother.
