Essence's Wish to Have a Princess-Themed Dance Party

Essence's wish to have a princess-themed dance party

“ Essence had the time of her life dancing around and forgetting her worries for a day. ”

Eight-year-old Essence from Washington, DC, has always loved everything girly. From her love of the colors pink and purple to dancing with her friends and family, Essence especially loves everything princess related. When diagnosed with a respiratory condition that resulted in countless hours in and out of the hospital for treatment, participating in her favorite activities became more difficult. When Essence learned Make-A-Wish® Mid-Atlantic would be bringing her one true wish to life, it was an easy decision – she wished to have a princess-themed dance party. 

For her wish, Essence gathered her parents, sisters, cousins and other family members for her big day. Music was played and everyone danced and enjoyed delicious pizza and other sweets. A professional videographer was even able to help capture Essence’s star moment! She enjoyed riding in a little car, and she and her family had the time of their lives dancing around and forgetting their worries for a day.

Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic makes wishes come true for local children battling life-threatening medical conditions and brings hope, strength and joy to kids like Essence when they need it the most.
