Grace, 9 years old
Nine year old Grace, who had been diagnosed with brain tumours, only ever had one true wish, and that was to meet her hero Kendall Schmidt from the American boy band Big Time Rush. Grace has loved Kendall since she was four years old and Kendall was the one person who brightened Grace’s day when she was down, and the one name that put a smile on her face when she was unwell.
February saw Grace’s wish come true when Make-A-Wish flew Kendall from Los Angeles to Christchurch in time for Kendall to be Grace’s Valentine on the 14th of February 2016. Under police escort, beautiful Grace arrived at her party at Burger Fuel in style in a Pink Limo, Burger Fuel being Grace’s favourite food!
Party guests and special guest Kendall were there to greet Grace on arrival, with Kendall presenting his valentine Grace with chocolate red roses. Kendall also brought Grace some fun pink moustaches and played Grace’s favourite song ‘Parallel’ to her on his guitar.
A special Valentine’s wish for a special girl called Grace who sadly passed away on the 10th of April 2016.
