Kaia's Wish Story!
Vivacious and wonderfully dramatic 3-year-old Kaia loves to dance, play family, and watch Peppa Pig. With big brown eyes and an endearing smile that draws people towards her, Kaia is an exceptional little girl. When she was only 2 years old, Kaia endured several long months of intense chemotherapy and hospital stays as she began her brave fight against anaplastic large cell lymphoma, a rare blood cancer.
Kaia’s parents, Sasha and Raymond, were devastated by the news of Kaia’s diagnosis and focused their love and attention on getting Kaia through her grueling treatments. Today, something as small as being able to eat toast when she wants is something the family celebrates; eating anything hard or crunchy was too painful for Kaia when she was sick.
When Sasha and Raymond were told that Kaia’s most heartfelt wish was going to be granted by Children’s Wish Foundation, NS Chapter, they couldn’t wait to tell her. Kaia knew almost immediately what she wanted for her most heartfelt wish, a trip to Disney to meet her most favourite princess, Belle.
Kaia’s parents shared, “this wish is a beautiful way to celebrate a great triumph, a way to commemorate our little girl’s battle.” Kaia and her family are looking forward to Kaia’s time away to call all the shots and have all the fun she deserves. Children’s Wish Foundation couldn’t agree more!
