David Stevens, wish dad and fundraiser

David Stevens writes about his special son Tylor, who tragically died when he was 17 years old after battling heart problems. Tylor's spirit for life has inspired David to take on a huge swimming challenge in his memory.

Tylor – my inspiration

I’m swimming Windermere in memory of my son Tylor, on what would have been his 21st birthday.

Jessica, wish sibling and volunteer

"The time we got to spend together seeing Ethan so happy and filled with laughter is a real lasting memory for our family. The pictures and memories will last a lifetime!"

In November 2010, my brother Ethan, who was 10 at the time, had his wish granted by Make-A- Wish. Ethan, me, my mum and a family friend spent the most amazing and unforgettable weekend in London!

The wish that was granted to Ethan was to see the X Factor rehearsals before the live show which would take place that night. As a family we got to meet the contestants including One Direction who Ethan and I were both so excited about.

We got to watch the show with a seat near to the front. We also got to travel to the studio in a limo which was a complete surprise to us both.
