“ Katie dreamt of seeing New York during the holiday season! ”

Ever since she was little, Katie has wanted to go to New York especially during the holiday season when the city is completely covered with lights and beautiful decorations. When she was diagnosed with cancer of the kidneys, the one thing that helped her through treatments was the idea that one day she would get to see the bright lights of the city. Last year, Katie was finally well enough to experience her dream of going to New York during the holidays. In addition to seeing the decorations, Katie was extremely excited about being able to be in a city known for one of the biggest passions in her life - FASHION!

While she was in New York City, Katie was able to tour around the city, visit the Statue of Liberty, explore the American Museum of Natural History, enjoy the animals at the Central Park Wildlife Conservation Center, see a Broadway musical, and go up the Empire State Building. Most importantly for Katie, she was able to experience shopping in a city filled with the newest and trendiest fashions! She had such an amazing experience on her wish that when it came time to come home, Katie expressed that she definitely did not want to leave New York City.

After she came home, she was asked what her favorite part of the wish was, and her response was a resounding, "Absolutely everything!!" It is probably safe to say that Katie had a fantastic wish experience and enjoyed her dream come true!
