Skylar was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease in fifth grade when her pediatrician discovered that her glucose was high. She constantly has to monitor her blood sugar and has to have regular shots of insulin every day. Skylar has to constantly balance her diabetic medication with her allergy medication which can be frustrating and change her demeanor.
Skylar loves makeup, art, and music. She loves drawing, singing and experimenting with makeup. Skylar is a strong-headed and brave young woman who tries to make the best of every day. Her favorite band is Paramore and she loves to shop at the clothing store Hot Topic.
Skylar’s wish was to be able to go to a Paramore concert. Prior to her wish date Skylar and her family were on vacation so she was even more excited about the two extra vacation days. Skylar and her mother got seats in the pit right next to the stage. Skylar was ecstatic at how close she was to her favorite band. Skylar’s mom said that she was happy all throughout the concert and even afterwards on their way to the hotel. But the surprises weren’t over after the concert, once Skylar and her family arrived at the hotel they were greeted warmly by the hotel staff who had set up banners in the lobby with Skylar’s name on them. Skylar was greeted with a cheese tray in her room’s mini fridge. The staff of the hotel even brought Skylar’s favorite snacks and a souvenir blanket and hat up to her room to end a perfect day.
Kids Wish Network would like to thank the following sponsors for making Skylar’s dreams become a reality:
- Embassy Suites by Hilton – Greenville Golf Resort
