Olivia's wish to go to Washington DC

15-year-old Olivia loves American history. Her favorite subjects in school are always the social studies courses (though English comes in a close second as Olivia has won awards for her poetry!).

During Olivia's treatment for Juvenile Dermatomyositis she was referred to receive a wish and met wish granters JoAnn Stevens and Becky King. They helped Olivia dream big as she decided her wish would be to GO to Washington D.C. Over the winter and spring, while Olivia was still undergoing treatments, she and her family spent hours together researching historic landmarks and things to see in our nation's capital and surrounding states. When the school year was over in early June, Olivia and her family shared an incredible wish experience visiting sights they had only read about. Now Olivia is excited to return to school in the fall knowing she'll have a leg-up in her A.P. Civics class.
 
We are grateful for Hal Davis Jewelers who helped sponsor Olivia's wish through the partnership Jewelers for Children program.
