Hunter is a 15 year-old from Pflugerville with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma whose wish was to go to New York! With activities like shopping, sightseeing, visiting Broadway and Little Italy, how could you not have the time of your life? Hunter said it was “everything I have ever dreamed of and more!”

Wish Kid HunterHunter has always wanted to go to New York, after seeing it in numerous movies, so when it came time for her wish to be granted, she took off for the Big Apple!  Accompanied by her mom, dad and younger brother, Hunter was able to explore all the city has to offer. 

Wish Kid HunterDuring her trip, Hunter visited several famous places like Central Park, Rockefeller Center and Ground Zero.  Hunter was also Defying Gravity in the Popular Broadway show, Wicked!  Later, she experienced what is quite possibly every girl’s dream; Hunter went shopping on 5th Avenue!  Seeing as Italian is her favorite type of food, Hunter and her family ventured into Little Italy one day for lunch.

Saving the best for last, Hunter also happened to be on Good Morning America!

What an exciting end to an already elaborate trip!  Hunter describes her Make-A-Wish® trip saying, “It was an experience that I will remember for the rest of my life.”
