Madelynne’s dream was to have a sweet 16 party. She thought about making an entrance and dancing all night. She wanted to have a birthday party to celebrate with her friends, family and all the people who have supported her. Madelynne thought about all of the details including her theme colors which were Sapphire blue and silver. She wanted to have stars all over the room.


The day of the wish was very special. A lot of people came together to make her wish come true, United Health group employees were there putting all of the stars up on the ceiling. They did not stop until all of the decorations were done. They donated the guest book, a donation box, and they paid for Madelynne’s hair and makeup. The florist came to deliver the flowers and balloons. Soon after that, everything was set to go.  Each table had a disposable camera on it so people could record all the fun memories. The guests began to arrive. Madelynne requested that all of her guests line up on the balcony as we walked up the stairs. All of guests went outside and stood outside and she walked up the spiral staircase. Everyone began clapping and calling her name. She walked in as her favorite song “Tick Tock” by Kesha. Madelynne went to every table to say hi. As dinner was being served, Madelynne and her dance team got ready for their dance routine. After dinner, her flag team performed their routine; Madelynne was so excited. After the dance routine, Madelynne had a dance with 2 of her family members.  After the special dances, Madelynne was ready to dance. She danced the rest of the night with her friends and family! At the end of the night, everyone sang ‘happy birthday’ to her as she was blew of the candles of her cupcake cake. Madelynne had a great time with all of her guests. She thanked all of the volunteers and let us know how special this night was for her!!
