I recently put together a wish for a very special little girl named Gildiana. About 1 month ago I was given a “rush” wish for a six year old little girl who lives in Miami with a malignant brain tumor. When I contacted Gildiana and asked her about her wish, she said she wanted to go on a shopping spree at Wal-Mart for Dora and Princess toys as well as a TV for her room.
I immediately contacted the district office for Wal-Mart and was told to contact the store in Hialeah Gardens. When I did the Wal-Mart management team was excited to be able to help with this special wish. They agreed to donate a gift card and to make her shopping experience unique.
I was trying to think of ways to make this wish extraordinary so I contacted Horse Drawn Dreams to try to arrange for a “Cinderella” carriage to help Gildiana make a grand entrance at Wal-Mart. Horse Drawn Dreams was eager to help. Fabiola at Wal-mart called Mayor De La Cruz of Hialeah Gardens and he too was on board to make this a day to be remembered. He accompanied Gildiana on her spree and also bought a gift card to help her with her purchases. That day Gildiana was precious in her white princess gown that was donated by Little Adventures, LLC. She was able to get all the things she wanted and more!
I want to thank all the people in the community who helped to make this dream possible for Gildiana. I also want to thank the many people who were so touched by this little angel’s story who have called in to offer their support and best wishes to Gildiana and her family. No matter what the future holds for this little girl she has definitely touched many people in a big way!
