Arieauna went on a Shopping Spree for her Wish!


“It was such a great day, I am so thankful to everyone involved in granting my wish!”

At the age of 9, Arieauna suddenly developed severe fatigue and other flu like symptoms. After collapsing and regaining consciousness in the ICU, doctors spent the next 5 days running a battery of tests before diagnosing Arieauna with diabetic ketoacidosis, a buildup of toxic acids in the bloodstream caused from untreated type 1 diabetes. Type 1diabetes is a chronic condition in which the pancreas produces little or no insulin, a hormone needed to allow sugar to enter cells to produce energy. Arieauna must now receive daily insulin injections and is prone to seizures.

When given the opportunity to have a wish granted, Arieauna quickly requested a day to feel like a princess. With the assistance of The Roseville Galleria Mall, Arieauna was able to have her very own special day and shop to her heart’s content.

“I couldn’t believe that this was happening. I absolutely loved Build-A-Bear Workshop and Esther’s Cupcakes were out of this world delicious!” said Arieauna. “It was such a great day, I am so thankful to everyone involved in granting my wish and for Kids Wish Network who made this all possible.”
