Kids Wish Network Grants Shopping Spree Wish to Wyoming Girl with Cystic Fibrosis
An 8-year-old girl suffering from a life-threatening illness had her only wish for a shopping spree granted through national children’s charity Kids Wish Network.
Mikayla’s grandmother was the one to refer her to national charity Kids Wish Network, whose goal is to grant wishes to children who suffer from life-threatening illnesses.
It was to a Kids Wish Network wish coordinator that Mikayla entrusted her wish of wanting a whole day full of shopping. And, before she knew it, the big day had arrived with some special surprises for her as well.
With the wish underway, it was time for Mikayla to go shopping and shop she did! At Best Buy, Mikayla picked up a Wii game system and a few games, an MP3 player and an awesome flat screen TV.
In addition to a shopping spree at Best Buy, Mikayla was also treated to some time to relax from all the shopping at the Signature Design Salon & Day Spa. There, Mikayla was pampered and treated like the princess she knows herself to be.
“She was on cloud nine,” said Mikayla’s mother, Kim. “She looked smashing and they treated her so specially!”
The salon, stylist Lindsey and her grandmother were very sweet and showered Mikayla with gifts including an American Girl doll and handmade clothes, a Justin Bieber pillow, balloons, nail polish, cookies and a tote bag.
Then, refreshed and done with her shopping, Mikayla and her family were treated to a wonderful dinner at Carrabba’s Italian Grill.
“She had such a good time,” said Kim. “I’m so glad she chose a shopping spree because she loved it. She had so much fun!”
Kids Wish Network would like to thank the following for making Mikayla’s wish such a special experience:
Best Buy, Signature Design Salon & Day Spa and Carrabba’s Italian Grill.
