Mikaela is a 2 ½-year-old girl from Surprise with a life-threatening lung disease. She wished to have a princess-themed half-birthday party with her favorite princesses.
On the day of her wish party, Mikaela arrived in her very own limousine at Girly Girlz where she got her hair and nails done and dressed up like a princess. Then it was off to the Phoenix Children’s Museum for her surprise Cinderella-themed princess birthday party. She was overjoyed when she entered the museum and was greeted by three of her favorite fairy tale princesses: Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, and Cinderella.
Forty of Mikaela’s closest family and friends came to celebrate with her. There were lots of balloons, princess decorations, bubbles, fairy wands, and presents. There was even a custom castle cake that said, “It’s your big day, Mikaela!” The princesses sang to Mikaela and wished her happy birthday, which was her favorite part.
“When the party ended, the princesses carried Mikaela to the limo - that was one of the best moments," said Melanie, Mikaela's mom. "The princesses signed her princess dress and she was so happy. This was the best memory I have with her.”
