A Wish For Adleigh

This past Sunday we did our 5th Wish Day for an amazing little girl! 3-year-old Adleigh was diagnosed with Diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas (DIPG) which is a highly aggressive and difficult to treat brain tumor found at the base of the brain. DIPG is a horrible monster that does not have any successful treatment plans. When we found out about Adleigh we knew we had to do something. So, with the help of many we had a magical day for Adleigh, her family and friends. Seeing the smile on this little girls face is why we do what we do! This smile is worth it all! Cancer takes so much from these precious children, their childhood, their innocence, their freedom, their time with their friends and family and all we want to do is give them a little bit of that back to them, even if it is just for a day💜

Adleigh began her Wish Day at American Girl where she was treated like the special princess she is. Adleigh was given many special gifts, including a brand new doll, outfits, ear piercing, nails painted and hair dos tor the dolls, that was donated by American Girl (Chesterfield, MO). Then her friends and family piled into a limo from JED Limousine and headed to Imogene's Tea Room where they were greeted by unicorns from A Zoo for You and Princesses from Dream Time Princess Events. The girls had gift bags, dress up clothes, tea, snacks, songs, dancing and the day was finished off with Adleigh meeting her new best friend, Max, an English Bulldog puppy! It was truly a magical day for an amazing princess! 🦄

UPDATE: With sorrowful hearts, we have to say that sweet Adleigh passed away on November 30, 2018. In her honor, the family has started a foundation in her name. You can learn more about her namesake charity, Adleigh is Forever by visiting: www.theAIFfoundation.com
