FEDERAL WAY, Wash. (January 2020): Shyanne loves dressing up as a princess and watching Disney movies. More than anything, she wanted to join her favorite princesses at Disneyland. Kids Wish Network, a children’s charity that grants wishes for kids with life-threatening illnesses, purchased generous gift cards to Disney and Hotels.com, and provided her family with tickets to Disneyland and Universal Studios Hollywood, giving Shyanne her royal princess adventure. Shyanne was born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, a severe heart defect in which the left side of the heart is underdeveloped. She’s undergone numerous open-heart surgeries, and will need a heart transplant.
“Shyanne will finally get to experience what she’s been dreaming about for so long,” said Kids Wish Network Executive Director Tam Lai.
