Shi En's Wish – Granted on 17 Mar 2017
“I wish to meet princess Elsa while dressed as a princess”
For Shi En and her family, Friday, 17 March, was a joyous and momentous day where the endearing five-year-old realised her cherished wish of meeting her favourite character, Elsa from Disney film, Frozen, as a princess.
Diagnosed with medulloblastoma, a type of brain tumour in Nov 2015, Shi En is currently in the recovery stage and had returned to school recently after undergoing four rounds of radiotherapy and chemotherapy last November.
Shi En’s wish day at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, where The Wonderful World Of Disney On Ice show was held, began with a “princess makeover" in her “palace” - a tent adorned with lovely light blue, white and silver decorations, and a pile of Frozen toys and merchandise, sponsored by Disney. The dolled up “princess” was then whisked away for a short ice-skating session in the arena, followed by a mini performance cum meet and greet with Anna and Elsa where she received lots of friendly hugs from the duo.
After the Disney On Ice show commenced, it was visible from Shi En’s adoring expression that she was thrilled to enjoy the show with her mother and grandmother and the spectacular VIP view made the fantastical winter wonderland experience more magical for the little “princess”. The shy “princess” even agreed to participate in the show and rode on the cart with her mother, during Genie’s performance.
As she witnessed her daughter’s wish unfold, Shi En’s mother beamed with joy and expressed her appreciation to everyone who made Shi En’s wish come true.
Make-A-Wish Singapore is grateful to Disney and Feld Entertainment for helping grant this magical wish experience for Shi En.
Shi En’s wish was also published in The New Paper on Monday, 20 March 2017.
