Addison Meets a Unicorn

“ Addison believes pink unicorns live in a magic rainforest. ”

Igniting an Endless Imagination, Uncovering the Magic Within

Addison is nothing short of amazing. Even through rounds of chemotherapy which started at just six years old, Addison never lost her sense of wonder. Cancer can be scary so distractions like rainbows and unicorns make the tough times a little more bearable.

But for Addison, unicorns were more than just mystical creatures who made chemo treatments go by faster. To her, unicorns were the most enchanted of the land, living only in the rainforests of Hawaii. Passionate about this truth, Addison’s wish to meet a unicorn came to life in the most magical of ways.

Traveling from Georgia to Hawaii, Addison’s wish began with her transformation into Princess Addison. She was greeted with a team of fairies and jesters on her quest to discover the pink unicorn. Together, they traveled through the forest uncovering the sweetest fruit, finding the prettiest flower, and even singing a song to release the magical unicorn.

With much anticipation, Princess Addison was finally able to meet the unicorn of her wishes. Her smile lit up the entire island. Flower petals fell around her as everyone celebrated coming face to face with this mystical creature. Five years later, Addison still has an unending love for unicorns. Now, she can let everyone know she’s seen one in person.

It is because of the help of an entire community that a typical forest was transformed into a magical land and a little girl fulfilled her wish to meet a unicorn. Addison’s wish is proof that where there’s a wish, there’s a way. Help us make the way for more wishes to happen for local kids just like Addison.
