Daleny’s mother noticed that her teenage daughter looked very pale and had been complaining of her head hurting. Blood work done at the doctors showed a high white blood count. Additional testing revealed the devastating diagnosis of acute leukemia.
Daleny is as very social young lady who was sad to have to be homeschooled while she received chemotherapy for a year. For now, she is considered in remission and is excited to return to school. She still requires physical therapy to strengthen muscles weakened by the chemo.
Even with all she is going through, Daleny is still all about helping others. She enjoys participating in community acts of kindness such as caring about the environment. Like many teenagers, Daleny wished for a day of shopping at some of her favorite stores.
Kids Wish Network made Daleny’s wish come true when we sent her to the Glendale Galleria Mall in Los Angeles County, CA. After checking in to the luxurious Amarano Hotel, Daleny’s limo, courtesy of Black Car LA, whisked her and her family away to the Mall for a very full day. Mall management greeted Daleny and presented her with a gift card to get her day started. She received numerous store gift cards, products and services from the many stores who were happy to participate in making Daleny’s forever wish come true.
After her shopping was done, Black Car LA drove Daleny and her family to a delicious dinner at the high-end steakhouse, the Palm Restaurant.
