Sydney, a 13-year-old from Williston, ND with Burkitt lymphoma, has wished to go to Paris for a long time. With the help of Adopt-A-Wish® Partner, Jewelers for Children, Make-A-Wish® North Dakota is making that wish come true.
On Sunday, March 6th, Sydney and her family will be on their way to an experience of a lifetime! Having a life-threatening illness is a time consuming and stressful experience, that’s why it’s so important for children like Sydney to be able to get away from it all and enjoy something exciting and different and not worry about being sick.
While in Paris, Sydney will realize her dream of seeing the Eiffel Tower and the Mona Lisa as well as taking in the sights with a cruise down the Seine River and touring the fashion district. But most importantly she will have the chance to make once-in-a-lifetime memories with her family in the “City of Love.”
Sydney’s wish, and many others, are possible because of Adopt-A-Wish Partners like Jewelers for Children. JFC will donate $750,000 this year and help grant 93 wishes all over the country. Our Adopt-A-Wish Partners are providing wishes that will change the lives of children and has the potential to be the turning point in their medical treatments.
