ROCKY MOUNT, N.C. (January 2020): Macy loves pop music, especially by Ariana Grande. She’s always wanted to experience her favorite pop idols in concert, and Kids Wish Network, a children’s charity that grants wishes for kids with life-threatening illnesses, made Macy’s dream come true, purchasing her a generous Ticketmaster gift card. She can’t wait to see some of her favorite pop stars perform live.
Macy was born with spina bifida, a condition where the spine and spinal cord don’t form properly, and hydrocephalus, a buildup of fluid deep within the brain. She has no feeling in her legs from the knees down, and has always relied on a wheelchair to get around. She’s already undergone 17 surgeries, and her health is a continuous struggle.
“We’re happy we can provide Macy with a way to experience the excitement of seeing her pop idols perform live,” said Kids Wish Network Executive Director Tam Lai.
