LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — A little girl was able to take time off battling a brain tumor to celebrate one of her wishes coming true, and it is all thanks to the Make A Wish Foundation.
Kadence, 9, has been making trips from Rockholds to Lexington for nearly four years. She usually comes to Lexington for her chemotherapy, but Tuesday, her trip was all about having fun.
She had a limo scoop her up to ride to Lexington in style for her Make A Wish Day.
For years, the little girl has dreamed about owning two lifelike baby dolls of her very own. Now, she has them.
She told LEX 18's Claire Crouch that her baby dolls were named Nevaeh and the other is Shevaun.
The limo took Kadence to The Magical Toy Shoppe in Lexington to pick up things for her new baby dolls.
Kadence's aunt, Erma Hilton, told LEX 18 that the comfort Nevaeh and Shevaun will bring Kadence will be something she will carry with her for years.
"When shes got these babies to play with, that's something, you know, that she's not thinking about her illness," said Hilton. "To see the look on her face when they gave her the baby dolls. I couldn't, it was just the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen."
The day was capped off with a "baby shower" at Malibu Jack's.
There are currently nearly 400 children in Kentucky who are waiting for their wish. For more details on how to get involved with the Lexington chapter, click here, or follow them on social media @makeawishohkyin.
