James Dream Story

Aspiring music producer James has a passion for music and dreams of one day creating his own album, after bravely recovering from cancer, Dreams Come True stepped in and bought James an Apple Mac Mini.

Aspiring music producer James has a passion for music and dreams of one day creating his own album, but he didn’t have the right technology, but after bravely recovering from cancer, Dreams Come True stepped in and bought James an Apple Mac Mini.

James, who is 16 from Bristol was diagnosed with cancer of the tongue in March 2014 and underwent surgery and eight cycles of chemotherapy and thankfully he is now in remission, but monitored very closely. 

James said: “I’ve chosen this dream because I produce my own music and a new computer is something I very much need.  As well as my current computer is too inadequate to work with anymore, I study production at college and they want me to put in as much work as I can at home buy it would require Apple software.  Other than those reasons, it would mean the world to me to have an Apple Mac Mini. I’ve always wanted one and it could potentially help me create a full length album.”

The computer arrived just before Christmas. Jane’s mum, Fran said: “Since James was diagnosed with cancer of the tongue back in March 2014 he has been extremely brave.  He has never complained through all the operations and chemo and has amazed us all with his sense of humour.  It couldn’t of happened at a worst time as this was James last year of school and despite missing a huge amount of time, he still managed to get good enough grades to go on to start college this month studying electronic music production which is also his hobby and love.  Being a single parent, I have tried my best to provide James with the necessary equipment he needs to produce his music, but most of all he would love and really needs the Apple Mac & Thunderbolt display.  He needs the Apple to help with his college work and also he would love, one day to produce his own album.  I know James would be absolutely thrilled and so grateful if you could please do this for him because he deserves it so much after what he has been through.  Thank you so much.”

After the items had been delivered we received a lovely email from James mother, Fran, which said: “James is absolutely thrilled with the Apple Mac Mini, we can't thank you enough for your generosity. What a wonderful charity supporting children with serious illness. I will continue to support this charity and have just joined the give as you live App so a percentage of everything I buy on line will go to the dreams come true charity.  Thank you once again, it really has made his dream come true.”
