Children's Wish Foundation grants $5K shopping spree wish
Bianca Lombard's dream came true Thursday when she went on a shopping spree at Mic Mac Mall
Brain tumour survivor Bianca Lombard went on a dream shopping spree Thursday thanks to the Children's Wish Foundation.
The 14-year-old was given $5,000 to spend at Dartmouth's Mic Mac Mall.
"To me, it means everything cause I've been wanting this, for like, forever," said the Dartmouth girl.
She says she didn't have a strategy for what she planned to buy. Some of the things she picked up included a bracelet, laptop and a stuffed animal of Olaf from Frozen.
"It was all for me," she said with a laugh.
Lombard's mother was thrilled the dream became a reality.
"I'm overjoyed," Angela Lombard said. "It's just something she's wanted for so long. I can't thank them enough for doing this for my daughter."
In the spring, things didn't look so good.
"We almost lost her," Angela Lombard said.
Bianca had a brain tumour removed during a 14-hour surgery at the IWK Health Centre.
Lombard said when her daughter learned her wish had been granted, she was ecstatic and jumped up and down.
