This Sunday, June 25 is going to be a once in a lifetime experience for a young girl from Big Valley, north of Drumheller.
Ayrianna Daychief has Neurofibromatosis, which can cause non malignant tumours to form on the body.
The Make a Wish Foundation of Southern Alberta has agreed to make Ayrianna's dream of being a Hollywood starlet.
The family is being put up at the Marriott Airport Hotel in Calgary Saturday night and the adventure begins the following day.
"At 9:00 a.m. Ayrianna and going to be getting her hair and makeup done," reported her mom, Crystal Daychief. "At 12:00 p.m. we meet in the lobby and she's going to have a police escort from the hotel to downtown Calgary."
"At 1:00 p.m. she'll arrive at the Palace Theatre in style. Officer Mike will be accompanying her inside, where she will be swarmed by paparrazi and reporters."
The wish day will also include celebrity impersonators and other performers and a surprize Hollywood award for the teen. It's the 500th wish granted by the Southern Alberta chapter since its inception in 1995.
15 year old Ayrianna was not told about her Make a Wish; she's been under the impression that the family is going to Hollywood for a holiday. Her mom admitted it's been tough keeping it a surprize.
