Bristol-Myers Squibb grants Wyoming wish

Aavah - BMS Grant
The reason Aavah wished to go to Disney World was simple: She wanted to be transformed into a princess she had only ever seen in movies.

Arriving at the Bibbidi Bobbiti Boutique, 4-year-old Aavah, from Cowley, and her sister prepared for their makeovers. They were pampered by fairies, and their time ended with a sprinkling of magic dust and an announcement so all in attendance could be part of celebrating the big moment.

“I couldn’t even explain in words how wonderful everything was,” shared Amber, Aavah’s mother.

With her time at the boutique complete, Aavah was now ready to meet the princesses she admired so much. Wearing her Ariel dress, complete with mermaid tail, Aavah smiled for photos and collected autographs that she would treasure for years to come.

“This trip was the trip of a lifetime for our family,” said Amber. “We created so many happy memories during the trip and could never have done anything like this on our own.”

Alongside her family, Aavah transformed into the princess she had only imagined she could become. Her wish experience reminded them all of the hope that dreaming can provide.

Make-A-Wish Wyoming would like to extend a special thank-you to Bristol-Myers Squibb for its support of Aavah’s wish and other wishes across the United States.
