There is a look that every child has when they first step into our ballroom; wonderment. We can’t wait to watch all those little faces light up, but there is one in particular that we are looking forward to seeing.
Emilia, 3, from Mississauga is our second recipient of the Princess Wish Ticket Grant Program. Emilia was born at 2lbs 9oz with a birth condition called EA/TEF (Esophageal Atresia and Tracheoesophageal Fistula). She was also born with a tethered cord where her spine sits lower then it should, and Chiari malformation where her brain sags into her spinal column. Emilia is a sweet and shy little girl who is incredibly compassionate and loves everything princess. After all the hospital visits and all the different procedures she has had it will be lovely for her to have a little fun.
Thank you to everyone who donated to help Emilia have this magical day.
About the Princess Wish Ticket Grant Program:
The Princess Ball is an event filled with whimsy and wishes. We know there are children in our community who are facing health issues, and we always remember that these children are the reason behind the Ball – to make their wishes come true.
We launched the Princess Wish Ticket Grant Program last fall to give families with children with health concerns the opportunity to attend the Ball. Thanks to your generous donations, we are able to provide tickets to three families that have faced significant challenges, and give them a magical afternoon of fun and gentle entertainment.
