“This was life changing for Dylan. It empowered him and brought out so much confidence.”
Dylan has been through many challenges with his lifelong autoimmune condition. He deals with daily stresses in an attempt to keep it under control, and was recently hospitalized for almost a week due to seizures. Dylan’s illness also affects his immune system, causing him to miss many days of school. He shared with Kids Wish Network that he loves watching Henry Danger on Nickelodeon. For his amazing wish, Dylan would be joining his favorite superheroes Kid Danger and Captain Man on the set of Henry Danger!
Kids Wish Network flew Dylan and his family to Los Angeles. Dylan felt like a Hollywood celebrity with all of his VIP treatment. On his big day, Exclusive Sedan Service chauffeured his family to The Burbank Studios. It was lights, camera, action on the set of Nickelodeon’s Henry Danger! Dylan was taken through each scene where the actors did their run through. Then Dylan excitedly met the stars, took pictures together, and personally received signed photos from Jace Norman (Kid Danger), Cooper Barnes (Captain Man), Riele Downs (Charlotte), Sean Ryan Fox (Jasper), Ella Anderson (Piper) and Michael D. Cohen (Schwoz).
After hanging out with the cast, actor Cooper Barnes (Captain Man) gave Dylan a private tour of the set. Dylan experienced Henry Danger’s top-secret Man Cave. While on the set, Dylan explored the control panels and went “up the tube” with Kid Danger Jace Norman. Cooper Barnes also taught him some of his own superhero moves. Dylan felt like one too when they pretended to kick down doors and fight crime together. “Captain Man taught me lots of stuff,” said Wish Kid Dylan.
“Cooper Barnes took my son under his wing and treated Dylan like he was one of his own,” said his mom Shannan. “It was incredible. He gave Dylan a pep talk and told him to ‘be the superhero that I know you are.’ This was life changing for Dylan. It empowered him and brought out so much confidence.”
Dylan also received special mementos… He was gifted a duffel bag filled with Henry Danger merchandise. Cooper Barnes also thoughtfully arranged for their production team to send Dylan clear plastic tubes filled with Henry Danger themed gumballs as a reminder of his experience in the Man Cave going “up the tubes.”
“Being on the set of Henry Danger was the best day of Dylan’s life,” said his mom.
During the wish, the family stayed at the beautiful Double Tree by Hilton Los Angeles Downtown. They also visited Universal Studios Hollywood, and enjoyed dinners at Tony Roma’s and The Hard Rock Café. Dining was also scheduled at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., but Dylan wasn’t feeling well, so his family was not able to attend.
“Thank you very very much for my wish,” said Dylan. I really appreciate everything and loved it all!”
