Jaquelline is a bubbly five-year-old who is bravely battling cancer. Due to her brain tumor, she has had to stay inside and rest despite her love for the outdoors and camping. Jaquelline also loves watching her favorite Disney show “Sofia the First”. Princess Sofia has made quite an impact on Jacquelline and has helped keep her spirits up as she fights cancer. In fact, Jaquelline is strong, curious and adventurous just like Sofia herself.
Another thing Jaquelline loves to do is to have tea parties with her dolls and stuffed animals but she has dreamt many times of having a real tea party one day. When our Make-A-Wish volunteers asked Jaquelline what she would wish for, she said it was to invite Princess Sofia to her house for a tea party, of course. Jacquelline wanted all her friends and family to attend as well.
She was so excited to wear her tiara and favorite princess dress to the tea party. The princess-themed event included mini finger foods and cupcakes served on mini dishes. As Jacquelline was enjoying her tea (with sugar cubes, of course), the most anticipated guest – Princess Sofia the First –arrived. Jaquelline took a ton of pictures with the Princess, colored together with her, and played with Jaquelline’s favorite toys.
Jaquelline had so much fun at her parTEA, she could not stop smiling. It was truly a day she would never forget. Her friends and family were so excited that Jaquelline was able to live out her dream of meeting Princess Sofia! She felt recharged by her wonderful day and could not stop saying “this was the best day ever!” as she waved goodbye to her friends and the royal guest.
