Mariela's Birthday Party

Mariela is a five-year-old girl from Raleigh. She was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia six months prior. Her chemotherapy treatment has induced heart failure as well. Sadly, Mariela was not expected to survive more than a few months. She had a birthday coming up and her family wanted to throw her a big party.

Mariela had a party at Chuck E. Cheese for 30 people. She got to arrive in style in a stretch limousine with all of her friends and family. She also got to meet The Descendants who gave face paintings and manicures to all who wanted them. Mariela, her family and friends had a wonderful time.

Thank you for allowing us to help Mariela and her family smile!
