Shopping Spree Lifts Emily's Spirits

Emily's shopping spree

“ It’s a perfect escape from the memories of her cancer treatments. ”

Today, Emily has no worries. All she has to do is shop. It’s a perfect escape from the memories of her cancer treatments.

She’s at her favorite mall – but it’s the first time she’s ever arrived in a limousine. Her first stop of the day made a splash at the cosmetics store; she has visions of one day being a cosmetologist and hair stylist. The staff treats Emily to a makeover and loaded her up with their best products. They even give her one of their own “employees-only” items … a tool belt filled with makeup brushes. It’s a perfect gift that makes her feel like she’s already a cosmetologist.

Then, Emily is on her way to pick out electronics. Her shopping list includes a notebook computer and a camera. After that, maybe some sweet-smelling soaps and fragrances.

Hours later, Emily’s shopping spree is over. She fills her limousine full of shopping bags and heads home. Still, the memories of her day, the care of her wish-granting volunteers and the warm welcome of every store employee will always be just a thought away.
