One Wish Makes A Girl's Dream Of Going To The Big-Apple Come True

Victoria's wish kicked off at a Memphis photography studio, where she was treated to her own special photo shoot before being whisked to New York for a weeklong shopping spree.

Victoria’s wish was inspired by her father.

Victoria is a girly girl who loves all things shopping: clothes, purses, hair and makeup.

Her inspiration for going to New York City came from her father, who used to live there. Victoria loved looking through his photo albums.

Make-A-Wish® and Bristol-Myers Squibb made it possible for 13-year-old Victoria to experience life beyond her illness with a spectacular trip to the Big Apple. Her wish kicked off at a Memphis photography studio, where she was treated to her own special photo shoot before being whisked to New York for a weeklong shopping spree.

When Victoria arrived, she went to the Apple Store, Abercrombie and Fitch and several other shops. But, her favorite part came as no surprise to her parents – it was getting to talk to so many different people who lived in her favorite city.

“Victoria was running through the streets of New York screaming, ‘I am in New York City,’” said her mother, Lisa. “It was so awesome to see her smile and laughing. Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for giving my daughter such an amazing experience.”

“We often put children through uncomfortable procedures. It wears them down. So giving them anything that can spark hope or a bright spot to look forward to is amazing … a wish does that.”
