Princess for a Day

My daughter sent me a link to this article about a Make-A-Wish wish (the 3,000th granted by the local chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation since its inception 20 years ago) she helped grant for a young girl battling neuroblastoma. That Redmond Drama was able to help grant this wish is poignant on several levels, which are apparent when you read the article.

Princess for a day - Young cancer patient gets to live out her fairy tale dream in Make-A-Wish milestone

She dreamed of being a princess.

Last week, that dream came true.

So when 4-year-old Krystal Graylin of Bellevue and her family sit down today to celebrate Thanksgiving, they will have plenty of reasons to give thanks.

Chief among them: After chemotherapy, surgery and more chemotherapy, Krystal appears to be winning her battle with neuroblastoma, a form of cancer.

And then, there is the thanks to be given for a host of volunteers who came together last Saturday at Redmond High School to make her dream come true.

The school's drama department was just finishing its production of the musical ``Cinderella.''

Student Steph Caron, stage manager for the production, is a cancer survivor who knew the joy of having a wish granted. The Make-A-Wish Foundation, an organization that grants wishes for children with life-threatening illnesses, had sent her to New York City to see a production on Broadway.
