Melanie poses for the camera

“It's very rewarding after she had gone through a lot.”


- Melanie's mom

Melanie loves dressing up, taking pictures and modeling, so it was natural that she would wish to have a modeling portfolio.

Make-A-Wish® Southern Florida captured her wish experience. Fashion photographer John Landers, along with fashion designer Eva Danielle and Primp Hair Salon & Extension Boutique joined together to grant Melanie's wish and start her modeling career.

Melanie, who was diagnosed with leukemia, was referred by Miami Children's Hospital.

Just to see her face and her smile, it's wonderful. ”
