Molly Receives the Perfect Playhouse

  • Wish Child Molly stands in front of her new playhouse

  • Molly peeks her head out of her playhouse

  • Molly's smile is a mile wide as she explores her playhouse

“ To this day, we still find her waking up early and going outside to paint, read, play games, and pretend she's a chef. ”


- Molly's parents

Molly is a spunky little girl with a big imagination. When wish granters approached her and asked what her one true wish would be, Molly’s reply was perfectly fitting for her personality.

Molly wanted a place where she could leave her worries behind and be anyone she wanted to be. Molly wished to have a playhouse.

 

Diagnosed with leukemia at an early age, Molly had spent much of her life within the walls of a hospital undergoing tests and procedures. While this atmosphere made living a typical life difficult for Molly, it did not stop her from letting her imagination be her escape. Molly loves playing make-believe and longed for a place where she could be a princess, an artist, and a world-famous chef…all in one day.

 

Make-A-Wish® worked hard to build a playhouse that surpassed even Molly’s wildest dreams. On a warm summer day, Make-A-Wish revealed their creation to Molly and her family. There were smiles all around as Molly took in the pink playhouse complete with white trim and blooming flowers in the windowsills.

 

Molly’s wish gave her a place where she could escape her medical battles and just be a kid. Even when she was enduring the roughest moments of her illness, Molly always had a fun new adventure waiting on the other side of the playhouse’s pink door.

 

Three years later, Molly’s playhouse remains a source of happiness and inspiration. Her parents wrote to Make-A-Wish:

 

"To this day, we still find her waking up early and going outside to paint, read, play games, and pretend she's a chef. THANK YOU, Make-A-Wish, for an incredible gift that continues to bring such joy to our daughter."
