Kristina's wish to go on a cruise

Kristina's wish to go on a cruise

“ On Kristina's wish, her family created memories to treasure forever. ”

    • I wish to go on a cruise

Kristina was raised in Cockeysville, MD and was diagnosed with a brain tumor at 7 years old. The outlook was bleak. Her family was devastated.

In the midst of that darkness, Kristina learned that Make-A-Wish® Mid-Atlantic would be granting her one true wish to go on a cruise. Her wish came true in January of 1997, and she had an amazing time with her family onboard the ship, spending each day soaking up joy.

Kristina passed away a few months after her wish came true, and while the loss was crushing, Kristina’s family was grateful for the time and memories that they created on the wish trip. Twenty-one years later, Kristina’s family still talks about the impact of her wish, and they are committed to making wishes come true for other kids like Kristina.
