Epic Relief helps Make-a-Wish
Come True

At Epic BIM, we love being EPIC in all that we do. That is why we have Epic Relief; where we have a chance to give back to the communities we serve as well as causes near and dear to our hearts.

This past weekend, we provided airfare for Brett and his family to see Pope Francis in Philadelphia.  Brett has a rare brain tumor he is fighting. Some days are tough and some are good. Recently Brett wanted to be a Priest for a day for his Make-A-Wish wish. After the stories surfaced about that many people worked to get Brett to see Pope Francis. They had tickets and a hotel but air fare on short notice that was going to be a challenge.

We know Brett and his family through our President, John Grady. His son Charlie, has been fighting brain tumors since 2008. Charlie and Brett have become friends who pray for each other nightly. We are so humbled and happy we were able to provide the airfare so Brett could see the Pontiff.  Check out the link below to read of Brett’s journey to Philly and the exciting adventures and surprises.
