Shanice Gets a Wish AND a Birthday Surprise!

Shanice at her party!

I recently worked on a wish for a very special young lady named Shanice. Shanice is from Texas and has a condition known as SMD which is a rare genetic disorder that results in dwarfism, skeletal abnormalities and vision problems. Shanice does not let this keep her down, though.

When asked about her wish Shanice immediately told me that she wanted to go to Disneyworld for her 12th birthday. She also told me that she loves cookbooks and watching the cooking channel on TV. I contacted Wolfgang Puck Grand Café in Downtown Disney and spoke to the manager to see if they might be able to make Shanice’s birthday one she will always remember. They said yes they would do their best.

The day of Shanice’s birthday, she was so excited when she arrived at Wolfgang Puck’s that she was shaking. They certainly did do their best to make her birthday memorable. They had an apron embroidered for her, a talking Minnie Mouse doll, Minnie Mouse ears, & a Wolfgang Puck cook book signed by all the staff. Because they knew she loves Paula Deen, they also contacted Paula’s people and were able to get her even more birthday goodies!! They also let her siblings make their own pizzas for dinner. They even had a special cake made by the pastry chef just for her.

I would like to thank the staff at Wolfgang Puck Grand Café for caring enough to make a difference in the life of a sick child.
