Lama (18) from London, has had her greatest wish to meet Zac Efron granted by Starlight Children’s Foundation, a national charity that grants once in a lifetime wishes to seriously and terminally ill children and creates entertainment in hospitals across the country.
A long-standing fan of Zac Efron, during her illness Lama received a signed picture from the star, who had written the message “Dear Lama, Be Strong”. Lama’s mother, Wafa, says that this has been extremely inspiring for her daughter through her treatment.
When the family was introduced to Starlight, Lama decided that her wish would be to meet Zac Efron and, although this seemed to the brave teenager to be an impossible dream, the charity set about making it a reality.

Starlight grants a once-in-a-lifetime wish for seriously and terminally ill children, restoring the magic and fun of childhood and giving the whole family happy memories to share, whatever the future holds.
Starlight also creates entertainment in every hospital and hospice throughout the UK. Sick children go to Starlight parties, laugh their way through pantomimes, go out on Starlight Escapes, play games and watch films on the Starlight Fun Centre, and enjoy the toys and puzzles of the Starlight Distraction Box. Happy children respond better to treatment and Starlight helps children to forget about their illness and simply have a bit of fun.
