Kira was granted a shopping spree wish from Kids Wish Network in 2009. Here’s an update on what she’s doing now!
Kira: Ever since my wish was granted, I have been very positive, outgoing and extra helpful. I tell myself everyday that I can achieve my dreams no matter what happens even though I have cystic fibrosis and hydrocephalus. I know now that I will be able to inspire kids and adults in many ways, not just through my music, but also through how I help my community.
My favorite part of my wish was that I was able to get my precious dog Sammy a dog stroller and a few toys because he has always been there for me when I am down or don’t feel good, and I still use it a lot.
I have to admit I felt like a princess during my wish since I was getting a lot of attention; I had the time of my life. I had a lot of emotions going on during this awesome event in my life like shock, happiness, joy; and I was smiling the whole time. That day, I was probably the happiest 9-year-old you have ever seen. I was having so much fun.

Thank you so much Kids Wish Network for making that day the best and most memorable moment of my life! You really helped me see that there are positive things about life and that no matter, if you have a disease, illness or disability, you can do whatever you set your mind to.
