Wish granter Sherrie always looks for ways to go above and beyond for "her" wish kiddos.
"When we went to visit Kennedy her mom had mentioned that one of Kennedy's favorite places to visit when she has to go to Hershey Medical Center for treatments or doctors visits is Hershey Chocolate World. Kennedy said that she just "loves the singing cows" that are a part of that ride. She has been on it many times and sometimes the ride operators even let her go through more than once because she loves it so much. She also has a stuffed cow from Hershey Chocolate World that she takes with her everywhere including her doctors visits, surgeries and hospital stays. The doctors know how much she loves this cow and when Kennedy just had a trach put in they also put bandaging on the stuffed cow similar to what Kennedy had to have.
I shared with Kennedy and her family that I was the winner of the National contest that Hershey Chocolate World held many years ago when they first remodeled and reopened Hershey Chocolate World to name the singing cows, Harmony, Gabby and Olympia. Kennedy became so excited. She said "I can't believe that I have the actual person sitting here with me that named the cows. How did you do that? How did you choose the names?"
When Kennedy left the room for a couple of minutes I asked her mom what she thought if I was able to reach out to the person who organized the grand reopening at Hershey Chocolate World to see if he might be willing to arrange a "meet the singing cows" moment for Kennedy and she said that Kennedy would just love that. I reached out to my contact and he got back to me right away and he told me that they would love to be able to do a "behind the scenes with the singing cows" happening for Kennedy. They are also going to give them tickets to the new 4D show and to the Make your own candy bar program. When I called her mom to tell her she said that she was so exited to get the news because Kennedy was actually at the hospital getting treatments at that moment and it is always nice to be able to share good news with everyone there. Kennedy is so excited to be doing this.
It has been really great having the chance to be able to my wish children experiences that they will really enjoy. I am very blessed too that there are wonderful people like Todd from Hershey Chocolate World to be able to make this happen."
Thanks Sherrie - looks like Kennedy had a great time!
