Fatima's wish to have an ultimate girls day

Fatima is a 15-year-old suffering with a severe lung condition. Her first wish was to go to Disney World with her family. Due to her condition travelling was denied, so, wish granters were set on granting a magical experience for her in Ottawa!

Fatima's wish was to have a special ultimate girls' day with her mum and sister. In October 2016 her wish came true in stylish fashion! Thanks to Tysen's Mission to a Million, who adopted the wish, Fatima was able to experience a once in a lifetime fairy tale-like day, complete with a shopping spree at Best Buy Canada and a makeover at York Street Spa. She lived like royalty at the Fairmont Château Laurier, and even had a custom-designed pink ball gown from our friends at Dominique Levesque Bridal.

Fatima's magical experience didn't end there. Later in the evening, she took a horse-drawn carriage, provided by Cundell John Stables, to the National Arts Centre, where our very own Cinderella got to meet the cast and crew of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella.

Thanks to the kindness of our partner organizations, volunteers, and generous supporters. 

Thank you to everyone who helped in making this day extremely magical for Fatima!

Special thank you to Tysen's Mission to a Million for adopting her wish come true!
