Allison, an 18-year-old from Bismarck with cystic fibrosis, found out in October that her one true wish is coming true! Now, the time has come for her wish to come true, thanks to Make-A-Wish® North Dakota.
On Friday, November 18th, Allison and her family will jet off to the “City of Love”! While in Paris, France, Allison and her family will have the opportunity to experience the Paris Big Bus Tour, the Palace of Versailles, a tour of the Eiffel Tower, the Seine River Cruise and free time to enjoy all that Paris has to offer. We hope this will be the trip of a lifetime for her and her family.
For Allison and her family this trip is an opportunity to get away from treatments and doctor visits and instead just focus on enjoying the experience together. The memories made on this trip will last the family a lifetime and make Allison’s world that much more magical.
Allison’s wish has been adopted by the Bismarck Fashion Show. The Bismarck Fashion Show was created in 2007 when Cara Mund decided to organize a fashion show to help raise money to grant a wish for her friend, Kayla. Several years of successful shows have resulted in many wishes being granted through the event. If you would like to learn how you can be involved with transforming live, one wish at a time, please let us know!
Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Since its inception in 1985, Make-A-Wish North Dakota has granted over 780 wishes to children across the state.
