Seven-year-old Amber Malloy was born with tetralogy of Fallot, a rare heart condition that causes oxygen-deprived blood to flow to the rest of the body. She has already had two open-heart surgeries in her young life, and doctors believe there are still more to come.
Amber’s condition means she may not be able to run and play quite like other kids her age; however, her imagination is as active as ever. When wish granters sat with her to discover her one true wish, Amber knew right away that she wanted to be a princess. She loved the idea of wearing a glittering crown and long silk gloves, but she was especially excited to have royal subjects at her whim.
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas accepted Amber’s royal decree. The Sahra Spa and Hammam whisked her away for a majestic makeover complete with hair, makeup and a manicure. A Royal Subject outfitted Amber in everything from the dress to the shoes, including the all-important gloves and tiara. A feast fit for a princess and her entourage was waiting at Wicked Spoon. It truly was a magical day for Amber and her family.

“Make-A-Wish® definitely fulfilled all of our wishes. It has been wonderful,” gushed Amber’s mom Shari.
None of this would have been possible without the help of partners like The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. We are so very grateful for their help in fulfilling Amber’s regal wish.
