While battling leukemia, Kylie wished for senior photos in order to bring some semblance of normalcy to her final year at Concordia High School. Throughout her wish journey, Make-A-Wish found several partners who combined to make Kylie’s experience truly memorable.

First, there was a shopping trip to Macy’s, where a personal stylist helped her select several new outfits in preparation for her photoshoot with the modeling agency of Page Parkes. After the session, Make-A-Wish surprised Kylie with the news that her story would be featured in a prominent Montgomery County magazine, including a front-cover appearance!

Finally, at Truluck’s, dozens of prominent members of The Woodlands community joined Kylie’s family and friends in celebrating her cover reveal. The night featured plenty of drinks and dancing, including a live performance by Stacy Nevaeh from San Antonio.

Without a doubt, the highlight of the evening was Kylie signing autographs of the magazine and posing for photographs with her fans, including Make-A-Wish co-founder, and Montgomery County resident, Tommy Austin.

Make-A-Wish Texas Gulf Coast and Louisiana is grateful for the phenomenal support of The Woodlands and Montgomery County for rallying around Kylie and giving her a wish experience that she will never forget!
