Adalyn, a little girl from Tennessee who has been given a prognosis of terminal cancer celebrated her impending fourth birthday with a very unique celebration with a princess theme that was arranged by members of her community.
Adalyn’s parents, Stephanie and Andrew, decided to throw their daughter the kind of celebration she deserved and would never forget on the occasion of her fourth birthday.
According to what Stephanie said, “we aren’t sure whether she will survive it to her fourth birthday so we thought, let’s throw an early celebration.” At that point, they collaborated with Tanya Sturm and Dreams and Wishes of Tennessee to give Adalyn a celebration befitting a princess. With their assistance, the party was a success.
Dreams and Wishes is a “very modest organization” with the objective of providing children and their families with “something to look forward to” as they go through the process of coping with a cancer diagnosis. Sturm is the founder of Dreams and Wishes.
Adalyn’s celebration, which was themed around Disney princesses and took place on January 7, included some of her most beloved characters, such as Olaf the Snowman and Elsa and Anna, the princesses from the Disney animated film Frozen, as well as other characters.
Stephanie said, “At first, Adalyn was overwhelmed, but when she met Olaf, she extended her arms and said, ‘She wants a warm embrace.'”
The celebration of Adalyn’s special day was attended by more than forty guests in total. Sturm expressed her delight at the amount of community support that the little child had gotten and said that it made her very happy.
Sturm said in reference to the celebration, “I made pleas on social media, and it was astounding how many people wanted to assist.”
