Carrie Underwood and Make-A-Wish Foundation Make Teen’s Dream Come True
Carrie Underwood is probably on a lot of people’s list of celebrities they would like to meet but she actually fulfilled one teenagers dream by seeing that her wish came true.
Hayley Gort, 18, from Grand Rapids, Michigan was diagnosed with a brain tumor on her pituitary gland. She had to undergo both chemotherapy and radiation for two months. She spent 3 hours, 3 days a week hooked up to an IV; followed by a week of nausea and vomiting. After 2 years of treatments Hayley was well enough to attend the show in Jacksonville, Florida.
Hayley’s trip and chance to meet Carrie Underwood in person was granted through the Make-A-Wish Foundation. She received free flights, hotel accommodations and Carrie, herself, donated the backstage passes.
This isn’t the first time Carrie has made a wish come true. She is a supporter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation and periodically is asked to grant wishes to kids and teens.
Hayley tweeted that this was the “best night of my life. I will never forget it! @CarrieUnderwood you don’t know how much that meant to me! #amazing.”
It goes to show that just a few minutes of someones time can make a big impact on someone else’s.
