Shore - I wish to go and see snow

I wish to go see snow - Shore

“ “Everyone is truly an angel in our life. Make-A-Wish is like an angel that gives you wings in the form of a Wish. It's amazing to see your child fly.” ”


- Wish mother, Jazmin

  • Shore , 8

    • Burkitt's lymphoma
    • I wish to go see snow

Shore was diagnosed with a very rapid form of cancer, and although she has responded positively to treatment, the everyday lives of her and her family are still often filled with worry. Despite the hardships, Shore appreciated the light that comes with a Wish, and the hope that it gives to Wish Kids and their families.

Growing up in Hawaii, Shore had never seen snow before. But after recalling stories from her friends, and seeing the movie Frozen, she knew that seeing snow would be something that she needed to experience alongside her family.

The adventure took place in Utah, where Shore was met with winding car rides, snowboarding lessons, and tours of the famous Ice Castles. Constant happiness was in the air no matter where they found themselves, because her entire family was just grateful to experience the impact of a Wish together.

"It has healed Shore to see people love and care for her so deeply... even though they may not have known her before." Wish mother, Jazmin said. "Watching her on the trip was amazing."

All of the fun inspired Shore and her family to consider how they can make a difference in their community. Jazmin hopes that this Wish experience will continue to provide Shore with hope and joy, especially when thinking of others.

Your generosity helps to make a child's life-changing wish come true, just like Shore's! We thank you for your contribution!

  • Shore made a giant snowball as she experienced snow for the first time.

  • Shore even got to slide down an amazing slide during her wish!

  • Shore grew up in Hawaii and never got to experience what snow is like.
