Claire's Wish to Go to Paris

Claire's wish to go to Paris

“ Claire was able to create lasting memories with her parents and her older sister. ”

Seventeen-year-old Claire from Baltimore, MD, is a typical teenage girl. She enjoys dancing, cooking and spending time with family and friends and she can’t get enough of Grey’s Anatomy or The Voice. However, unlike many girls her age, Claire’s life was changed forever when she was diagnosed with cancer. Rather than studying for exams or cheering on her high school football team, Claire bravely endured countless doctor appointments, treatment plans and hospital stays. When Claire found out she was eligible to receive a wish from Make-A-Wish® Mid-Atlantic, she knew she wanted to take a memorable trip with her family. After much deliberation, Claire wished to go to Paris!

Claire had always dreamed of visiting Paris. When anticipating her wish trip, she was looking forward to seeing the Eiffel Tower, the Centre Georges Pompidou and the Louvre. Claire also couldn’t wait to go shopping! She had traveled outside of the country with her family multiple times and was excited to finally visit France. 

Upon arriving in Paris, Claire’s wish was everything she had hoped for. Not only did Claire enjoy visiting all of the sites that Paris has to offer, but she was able to create lasting memories with her parents and her older sister. Granting wishes like Claire’s provides both wish children and their families with hope, strength and joy when they need it most. 

Thank you to Airbnb for helping to grant Claire’s wish.
