On Saturday, May 3rd, I got to meet Hannah. Hannah is 8 years old, and the only kid in the whole state with Batten’s Disease, which is a fatal neurological disorder. My mom said that Hannah knows she is very sick, and won’t get better, and that makes me really, really sad. She has seizures sometimes, and will eventually be in a wheelchair, and need her family to totally take care of her the rest of her life. I think she is very, very brave!!!
Because of this horrible sickness that she has, Hannah has become blind. But she has always wanted to be a super model, so with the help of P.S. Aeropostale at the mall, we made her wish come true!
The awesome employees at P.S. Aeropostale all got together and bought Hannah a gift card! They also helped her hook up with a cool salon, Salon Rios, where she got her hair braided, curled, and made pretty!
She also had a best friend come along, to help her choose outfits and accessories. She and I described all the things to Hannah, so she that could imagine what they looked like and pick her favorites!
Hannah seemed to have a really fun time, and then we got to go do a photo shoot with her and photographer Heather Hillman! Please PLEASE go look at her amazing pictures of this day, which are here! She was super awesome!!!
A very special thank you to Hannah for letting me work with you, and help with your special wish, and letting me be a part of your photo shoot! And thank you to P.S. Aeropostale for giving Hannah such an awesome opportunity. I had a lot of fun, and I’ll never forget this special time with Hannah!
