Alyssa wished to meet the band One Direction


“ I feel very blessed to have shared Alyssa's wish ”

Alyssa is a very sweet and fun girl who loves One Direction, especially Harry! We had a wonderful time together and I enjoyed getting to know the wish family.

I met them at their hotel at 4pm and then we took a stretch SUV limo that was really awesome! Once we got at the Amway, we met with Sarah Thompson-the tour manager-and she was amazing! She was so sweet and caring! She gave Alyssa a 1D backpack that had pin buttons of the band and a program of their concert. She stayed with us the whole time and made sure we were comfortable. We were last in line to meet 1D. While we were line, we met another Tour Manager who was really down to earth and friendly. Once it was our turn, the boys were really nice and took pictures with Alyssa. They signed all of her things which included a bunny, MAW T-shirt, and a journal. Harry hugged Alyssa and she said that she was never going to shower again! The concert was great and they put on a good show! We had unbelievable seats! We all had to wear earplugs because we were so close. The band kept seeing us in the crowd and waved a few times to Alyssa which made her feel really special. On the way back, the family was very thankful and appreciative.
