Gracie Visits the Set of Her Favorite TV Show

Fifteen-year-old Gracie loves to read and hopes to become an author one day. Her favorite escape into the world of fiction happens when she reads books from popular teen collections. So when she was visited by Make-A-Wish to help determine her most heartfelt wish, she knew exactly what she wanted!

Fifteen-year-old Gracie has acute lymphoblastic leukemia, but that certainly doesn’t stop her from enjoying all of her favorite things.  Gracie loves to read and hopes to become an author one day.  Her favorite escape into the world of fiction happens when she reads books from popular teen collections.  She loves everything about books catered to teens her age – the books, the accompanying television shows and especially the actors who portray her favorite literary characters!  Watching television has been the single constant whenever Gracie would have to stay home from school due to medical treatments.  Being able to escape into the alternate worlds created by some of her favorite television shows was the one thing that helped Gracie feel like a normal teenager.  When the Make-A-Wish® team visited Gracie to talk with her about her wish, she knew exactly what she wanted – to visit the set of her favorite show and have some time to hang out with the actors and actresses who bring her favorite fictional tales to life.  Make-A-Wish set out to help make Gracie’s heartfelt wish come true.  She arrived on set in her very own limo, got to observe scenes from production, tour the set and meet the cast of her favorite show.  “I’ve never been so happy in all my life,” said Gracie.  “Thanks so much for everything you did!”
