In conjunction with the Lubbock Make-A-Wish Foundation, I had an opportunity of a lifetime to help a young girl’s wish come true! Jayci is from Muleshoe,TX and made a wish to become a princess. Jayci is 3 years old and has been fighting cancer. After enduring several chemotherapy and cancer treatments, Jayci has developed a heart condition and has had multiple heart surgeries. Because of the nature of her health, in addition to her age, she is unable to have the additional surgeries that are needed until she is at least 5 years old.
To make Jayci’s wish come true, she received a bedroom makeover, turning her bed into a castle and the walls were painted & decorated in deep purples and golds. I was able to play a part in this by donating a crown (once belonging to Miss Teen Allen!), tiara & specter along with a Miss Plano autograph picture.
I was deeply moved by Jayci’s story, and although it makes me so sad that there are children like her suffering, I am extremely thankful that there are organizations such as the Children’s Miracle Network and Make-A-Wish Foundation to help them fulfill their dreams. I am so thankful and blessed to have been a part of Jayci’s!
