Caledonia Girl with Sickle Cell Anemia Granted Wish to Attend Grammys

A Caledonia girl with sickle cell anemia has her wish granted of attending the Grammys.

Sarah Stone attends Mckinely Middle School and has spent most of her life enduring the pain of sickle cell anemia, but that did not stop her from enjoying music.

“I love music I love singing. So if I don't become a famous singer like Beyoncé at least I can say I made it to the Grammys,” says Stone.

Stone set off with her mother from Mitchell International Airport thanks to the Make a Wish Foundation.

“A lot of pain. A lot of medications and surgeries. So, this is a blessing. Vacation from Wwisconsin in the middle of February, sunny weather and we get to see a place we've never seen before," says Genise Perry, Sarah's mom.

The two will enjoy special dinners and tours and have the chance to see all of Stone’s favorites including Beyoncé and Bruno Mars.

The company “Meetings & Incentives Worldwide" in Caledonia helped raise the money that paid for the trip for Sara and her mom.  

Since its formation in 1984, Make a Wish Wisconsin has granted nearly 6,000 children and their families experiences of a lifetime.
