Tyra's Vancouver Wish!

Tyra May is a very sweet and kind 14-year- old little sister to two big brothers Brock and Kade, and one older sister, Payton. She loves her pets, dog Hank and cats Poppy and Ricky; watching Netflix, and hanging out with her friends, much like every other teenager. If you ask her who her best friend is, she will say Ella, and then her Mom. Tyra loves the great outdoors and always wanted to go visit Vancouver.  This Make-A-Wish experience means the world to Tyra and her family. It will give her back a little bit of her childhood that she lost to brain cancer. She and her Mom spent far too much time away from her siblings while she was undergoing treatments, and this will be some much needed family bonding fun time!

Tyra's was invited to Fernando Cellini hair salon and was extremely excited about her “makeover”. Family and everyone at the salon celebrated the news that Tyra’s wish to go to Vancouver was coming true!

On October 21, 2019 Tyra and her family arrived at the Ottawa airport and were greeted by wonderful WestJet representatives that treated her like a VIP. Tyra was going West to beautiful Vancouver BC!

Tyra and her family had an amazing time in Vancouver BC !  “We can’t begin to describe how thankful we are to you, the Make A Wish organization, and the sponsors for the Vancouver trip. It was incredible, something right out of a dream. We saw the most incredible scenery and fit as much fun into 5 days as we possibly could! Thank you!”  – Angel (Tyra’s mother)


Thank you WestJet, TuGo Insurance, Sony for helping make her wish come true.  A special thank you to Fernando Cellini, La Bottega Nicastro and Riviera Ottawa for adopting Tyra’s wish and making her come true! Also for helping make her reveal so very special!
