Katie's Wish

The Warrior Princess

Five-year-old Katelynn, better known as Katie, from Shelburne, NS is an energetic, playful, intelligent, and precious princess! Katie loves the outdoors, going for walks, doing crafts, reading, watching TV and playing with Lego, and of course she loves princesses.

Katie has been a brave and fearless warrior since she was born. Katie is living with a very rare congenital respiratory condition which many hospitals around the world have never had to deal with, and many doctors gave her roughly four weeks to live. Katie spent the first two years of her life in the hospital being watched closely by her team of specialists at the IWK. After a long road, Katie was finally able to be brought home. Katie has had many medical procedures throughout her childhood, but her loving nature, strength and bravery have been noticed, and recognized by everyone who has met her. Now five, Katie was able to have her wish. When Katie was asked what she wished for, her face lit up and said, "I wish to meet Moana."

The Polynesian princess was sailing through Orlando, so Make-A-Wish Atlantic Provinces sent Katie and her family to meet her idol. When the day finally came to meet Moana, Katie’s mom, Tami, said, “We’ve never seen Katie this happy! To see the pure joy and happiness on her face was so special.” Katie and Moana spent quiet some time together during their special meeting, they talked and played games and Tami said, “It was just magical.”
