When 12-year-old Emma from Michigan was asked to choose a wish, she knew exactly what she wanted: to visit the set of her favorite TV show, NCIS.

Just last year, Emma was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, a disease that clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening infections. Emma’s condition was so bad that no nutrients were being absorbed into her body and she was immediately started on a drastic regimen of enzymes to help reverse the damage being done.

To make her dream come true, we arranged an all expenses paid trip to Los Angeles for Emma and her family along with extra surprises, including a gift box filled with toys and games tailored to Emma’s likes and preferences, limousine rides to and from her destinations, a guided tour of Los Angeles, and even tickets to Universal Studios Hollywood.


I recently interviewed Emma for one of our Kids Wish Network podcasts and she had so many great things to say about her awesome NCIS wish that I thought we’d share it with you here on our blog. Enjoy!
