Make a Wish Central New York celebrates anniversary with puppy reveal

first_img“She wanted something tiny,” Stone said. “Something that she could dress up in little outfits because she loves to accessorize,” she said. “She had clear cell carcinoma and she was diagnosed when she was three and a half,” Stone said. “She had radiation and chemotherapy and now she is all better,” she said. “Parents report all of the time that a wish often changes the atmosphere of the whole family because it’s not just the kids that’s going through a critical illness it’s the whole family,” she said. Make a Wish was giving Natalie the surprise of a lifetime. Natalie’s surprise was the centerpiece of a celebration marking 35 years of granting wishes in Central New York. Stone says that Natalie didn’t want just any puppy. “Of the nearly 1,900 wishes we have granted to date about twenty five percent of those are for kids right here in the Southern Tier,” said Diane Kuppermann, President and CEO of Make a Wish Central New York. A moment of joy for a little girl who has been through so much, now with a clean bill of health. “They gave us some ideas for what other kids had asked for and she really had her eyes set on a puppy,” Stone said. JOHNSON CITY (WBNG) — Make a Wish Central New York celebrated their 35th year by surprising five year old Natalie Stone with a new puppy. Natalie is currently recovering from cancer. Putting smiles on the faces of children and their families. Kaitlin Stone says she hopes the new puppy will make it a little bit easier to get Natalie up for school tomorrow morning. “I got a little teary eyed. It was a very emotional moment seeing that we’ve gone through so much but here we are it’s a happy day,” said Natalie’s mother Kaitlin Stone. “Nobody was left out. They brought presents for our other kids and they made sure everybody felt they were a part of the whole day,” she said. “I hope that everybody sees that she had a day where her dream came true, they do so much for so many kids,” she said. Stone says even though everyone felt included, it was still Natalie’s day. Something that Stone says rings true for her family. last_img read more
