Alyssa is seven-years-old and lives in the greater Sacramento area with her family.  Like most girls her age, Alyssa is fascinated with the color pink and anything Disney. She absolutely loves the princesses and if she were to have to pick a favorite character, it would be Tinker Bell! While Alyssa is very much like the All-American little girl, she and her family have the unfortunate battle of enduring the life-threatening 
medical condition of a brain tumor.

“Mommy, Prince Charming kissed my hand!”  – Wish Child Alyssa

The entire community was involved in making Alyssa’s wish possible, especially Wells Fargo and their team. Alyssa’s wish reveal was nothing short of magical. Princess Alyssa and her family entered the rodeo in a horse drawn carriage where she was greeted by a crowd of cheering people. Shortly after, Lead Regional President, David Glasso from Wells Fargo, introduced some very special characters, such as: the Fairy Godmother, TinkerBell, and Prince Charming. Then they revealed the best surprise of all; Princess Alyssa and her family were to be whisked away on a dreamy Disney Cruise! Alyssa later embarked on her journey sailing around the Caribbean, visiting Disney Island, and meeting all of her favorite Disney princesses. Alyssa and her entire family felt a new sense of hope from Alyssa’s wish celebration and trip. Alyssa’s mother, Terry Kalb said thankfully, “There is hope that better days lie ahead and there’s sun behind the clouds.” 

Mommy, Prince Charming kissed my hand! ”
