When Addy was four, she began experiencing intense stomach pain. After a couple trips to the hospital over the course of three months, she was diagnosed with stage IV cancer.
While she was at the hospital for her treatments, Addy would pass the time by drawing, singing, dancing, and taking inspiration from her favorite musicians. This tough little girl handled radiation, chemo treatments, and countless hospital trips. When she was told that Make-A-Wish® Mid-Atlantic was going to grant her a wish, she asked to be a pop star performing her favorite song by her favorite artist: “Roar” by Katy Perry. And her wish came true!
In fact, Katy Perry even tweeted out a sweet happy birthday message to the young survivor after her video premiered!
BIGGEST Happy birthday to my FAVORITE pop star, ADDY! LOVED your music video! You’re an inspiration 🎤 @MakeAWish 🎂🎁🎉
