RIDOTT, Ill. (February 2020): Lilly loves everything about horses, the moment she comes home from school she is outside spending time with her favorite animals. She has papillary thyroid carcinoma, a type of throat cancer that affects the thyroid gland. She previously participated in barrel racing, but with her surgery and treatments, she’s been unable to compete. Her horses continue to be the light in her life that sparks her happiness. Knowing how important they are to her, Kids Wish Network, a children’s charity that grants wishes for kids with life-threatening illnesses, purchased Lilly generous gift cards to HorseLoverZ.com and My12volt.com for all her equines’ needs.
Lilly is excited to shop with her horses and plans on using some of her gift card to purchase an air conditioner for her horse trailer, traveling her equestrian friends in comfort. “Lilly’s wish will further enrich the part of her life that brings her peace, joy and purpose,” said Kids Wish Network Executive Director Tam Lai.
