Wish Child Kyra continues to teach others about life, even after gaining her angel wings. Kyra’s mother and Make-A-Wish® Missouri were honored to be part of Orlando Watson's I'm A Survivor" All White Cancer Gala" at the History Museum on Sunday, July 21, 2013. Thank you to Orlando and Talia Kaplan of KSDK News Channel 5 for welcoming Wish Child Kyra's Mother, Karon, and our very own Stephanie Hampton-Boeglin to share our mission and the impact of Kyra's wish.
Kyra' wish to go to Disney World was granted in May of last year. She battled osteosarcoma and earned her angel wings on February 5, 2013. Her spirit will live forever.
