Fifteen-year-old Chyanna is fighting T-Cell lymphoblastic lymphoma, a type of cancer that affects the lymphatic tissues of the body.
Along with the support of friends and family, one thing that helps Chyanna keep up her fight is her love for Anne of Green Gables. Anne’s imagination and sense of adventure mirror Chyanna’s creativity, which inspired her wish to go to Prince Edward Island to see everything Anne!
Chyanna and her family were greeted at the airport with a large cutout of Anne of Green Gables and taken to a limo. The first days of her trip were filled with excursions to Parks Canada Green Gables Heritage Place where she was able to learn more about L.M. Montgomery, the author of Anne of Green Gables, and then to the Anne of Green Gables Museum where Chyanna got to walk through the Green Gables estate!
The highlight of Chyanna’s wish came when she and her family went to a matinee of Anne of Green Gables – The Musical! She was even able to meet some of the cast and crew after the show! Chyanna’s wish of going to Prince Edward Island allowed her and her family to escape into the storylines Anne of Green Gables and create memories to last a lifetime.
