All her life, Sidney has grown accustomed to missing a lot of school only to spend days in the hospital. But even that hasn’t stopped her from thinking of others and wanting to make a difference in the world. So when she was asked about her wish, she knew she wanted to pay it forward and volunteer at an animal shelter.
An avid lover of animals, Sidney got her wish and was able to make many animals feel at home while away from home. Since Sidney could relate to being away from her loved ones, her kind and loving spirit helped to touch many others on that special day.
Having her wish come to fruition was a welcome distraction from all of Sidney’s routine appointments and hospital visits. More importantly, by giving back to her community, she received so much more in return. And that special kind of gift is priceless.
