12-year-old Kerry has juvenile arthritis. She has never been free from pain, since learning to crawl.
Her dearest wish was to go for a ride in a hot air balloon. Despite two cancellations due to bad weather, the third attempt proved lucky and Starlight was finally able to grant Kerry’s wish.
“I still can’t believe that my wish came true” she said afterwards. “It really was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Many thanks to you all at Starlight for making my dream come true.”
