Life was a lot different before Daisy arrived. Daniela was in the middle of the hardest days anyone could imagine – diagnosed with leukemia before her seventh birthday, all the trips to the hospital, even losing her hair.
But the worst days are behind. And even the most difficult of Daniela’s treatments are a little easier to face.
That’s because of Daisy. You wouldn’t believe how much of a difference a Yorkshire terrier puppy can make for a kid like Daniela.
The transformation started with a visit from Make-A-Wish® volunteers. They offered her the chance to make any wish. Just like that, Daniela had a promise of something good in her future – the promise of her own puppy.
Months later, Daniela returned home from a walk with her aunt and uncle. She found her house full of unexpected visitors – and one new member of the family … four-month-old Daisy.
That afternoon, Daisy became Daniela’s reason to stay strong during her treatments. Daniela is determined to enjoy every day with Daisy, who is a source of never-ending happiness.
Daniela still works hard to get better. But with every month that passes, she needs a little less medical attention. And that means more time for Daisy – and more time to be a regular kid once again.
