Brianna, 11, has always dreamed of visiting New York City with her family. She has a zest for life and loves to travel, but she’s never been to the Big Apple. When Make-A-Wish volunteers asked Brianna what she wanted for her wish, it was clear that there was nothing she wanted more than to visit her favorite city!

Brianna had a list of sites she absolutely wanted to see such as the Empire State Building, Ellis Island and, of course, Broadway. She and her family visited the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, the High Line and Grand Central Station.  She also saw the Lion King on Broadway.  Brianna and her family had an unforgettable trip with unforgettable memories.  Her mom, Tonya, shared:

“The trip was wonderful for Brianna, she stated that her favorite part was everything!  Brianna felt like a princess; she felt really cared for. Because of her wish, Brianna now wants to help children with serious health issues like she has and make them feel special, just like the Make-A-Wish has made her feel.”
