How amazing is it that we have the ability to touch peoples lives like this! To think that this experience may even give an individual the strength for life!!
This is such an amazing and inspiring article (which includes a video!). Please check it out:
Mary Alice Stephenson, fashion ambassador for the Make-a-Wish Foundation, along with “America’s Next Top Model” photographer Nigel Barker helped fulfill a shared dream of four teenagers — to be a model for a day. The four teens are battling life-threatening diseases, and last week, they were able to forget their treatments and simply enjoy being a style star. TODAY's Amy Robach got a front row seat at the inspiring show.
Numerous hair and makeup stylists — a “glam squad” — dolled up the girls in red carpet-worthy gowns and designer shoes on a fairy tale-inspired set. Nigel Barker then photographed the teens, all showing off their best poses, while their family and loved ones looked on.
