Emily flies to Paris

Emily wished to go to Paris

“ ... Emily’s trip reassures her entire family that things will be OK. ”

Emily rarely strays far from her local hospital. The distance from there to her home is a comfort zone … and it’s also an emotional tether.

  • The Eiffel Tower

  • Emily goes to Paris

  • Emily goes to Paris

  • Emily enjoy Paris culture

  • Emily and mom

But today, her world expands. Emily boards a flight to Paris – a city she’s dreamed about since watching Audrey Hepburn star in the movie Sabrina. She’ll see the Eiffel Tower, relax on a sidewalk café, enjoy dinner during a luxurious Marina de Paris Seine River cruise.

Something even more profound will happen, though: Emily’s trip reassures her entire family that things will be OK. It gives Emily confidence to know she can live life again, just like any girl her age. It is her proof that she will experience life on her terms … and that the tumors she fights do not define her.

Monograms Travel® planned and donated Emily’s trip to Paris. Since 2009, Monograms Travel has donated $150,000 worth of travel vouchers to grant international travel wishes. Local support and guidance arranged through Monograms allows wish kids and their families to enjoy seamless, worry-free trips abroad.
