On July 7, we granted our 1500th wish since our founding in the year 2000. Five-year-old Fallon, who had a stem cell transplant, was celebrated as the 1500th wish kid. The celebration was held at the Nashville BNA Airport upon Fallon’s return home from Walt Disney World® Resort. Make-A-Wish Middle Tennessee’s summer communications intern, Isabella, shares her perspective on the day.
