A Quinceanera That Couldn't Wait

Hi everyone,

I was sent a video today that really touched my heart. If you take a look for yourself you'll see why. It's the Quince story of Julia Wagner. The eighth-grader wanted a Quinceanera, but osteosarcoma, a bone cancer, was moving in quick. It had claimed her right knee and part of her leg. Doctors weren’t sure how long she had to live.

“And no matter if you lose your battle or not you never technically lose it," Wagner said. "You fought it, and that’s what counts.”

The Make-A-Wish foundation made the Quinceanera possible.

Thank you to Make-A-Wish for providing Julia with her special day.
