Aaryn from Silver Spring, MD is a bubbly, excited teenager who enjoys riding her bike, watching television and going out to eat in her free time. She loves spending time with her friends and family, and due to her social nature, she jumps at an opportunity to go to the movies or go shopping with her loved ones. When Aaryn was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma, she found herself spending less time enjoying the company of her friends and family and more time at doctor’s appointments managing her treatment plan. For this reason, when Aaryn found out she would be receiving a wish from Make-A-Wish®
Mid-Atlantic, she wished to have a shopping spree on Fifth Avenue in New York City!
Aaryn couldn’t wait to spend time exploring New York City with her family. She had visited New York in the past and always had a good time, so she was over the moon at the chance to have her very own shopping spree on Fifth Avenue. Aaryn was excited to peruse all of the stores that Fifth Avenue has to offer, including Macy’s, Louis Vuitton, Tiffany’s, Sephora and Saks Fifth Avenue. Aaryn’s wish gave her something to look forward to during her battle with Hodgkin’s lymphoma and allowed her to enjoy being a teenager while spending time with her family. Granting wishes like Aaryn’s provides children battling life-threatening medical conditions with something to look forward to when they need it most.
