When Chasity made her wish to have a shopping spree, she let her imagination run wild. She made lists of her favorite stores. She researched new products online. She dreamed of a perfect day with her family, one where anything was possible.
No longer did she feel restricted by leukodystrophy, a progressive degeneration of the brain's white matter; her mind was once again filled with hope, strength and joy.
The 17-year-old's unforgettable wish experience was filled with freedom and pampering. The day began when a decorated limousine picked up Chasity and her family from their Milwaukee home and whisked them away to Mayfair Mall in Wauwatosa.
Once there, Chasity received V.I.P. treatment at all of her favorite stores, including welcoming receptions from store staff, personal shoppers and private dressing rooms!
Chasity overhauled her wardrobe with long stops at Aeropostale and Claire's accessories. She also bought a new laptop, iPod and TV at Best Buy, bagfuls of books at Barnes & Noble and a brand new cell phone from Cricket.
But the highlight of the day was purchasing a beautiful new bedroom set from Kohl's department store, whose staff went out of their way to make Chasity feel like a star. It will be the perfect place for the teen to remember her amazing wish...and to continue dreaming big about her future!
