Maya's Wish | to be a ballerina

If there’s a kid destined for the stage, it’s little Maya. Five year old Maya is brimming with dramatic talent. Full of expression and personality, Maya loves to sing and dance—especially ballet and tap. Even when she’s not at dance school, Maya loves to put her tap shoes on and make some noise!

Nothing is getting in the way of this little girl’s dream, not even leukemia. Diagnosed in June 2011, Maya is undergoing two years of treatment. There have been some setbacks, including allergic reactions to medication, but nothing is stopping little Maya. She is continuing to sing and dance—and dream.

Maya’s big wish was to see a professional ballet production. It involved a trip to Toronto to meet the folks at the National Ballet of Canada ~ plus the Sugarplum Fairy.
