On top of the typical high school stressors, eighteen-year-old Sarah is also battling cystic fibrosis – a chronic lung disease that severely affects her breathing ability. While her friends focus on college and planning for their future, Sarah must comply with daily breathing treatments, medications and consistent doctor's appointments.
Despite the difficulties Sarah faces treating her critical illness, she manages to maintain her outgoing, confident personality. One of Sarah’s favorite ways to keep her mind focused on nothing but positivity includes feeding her greatest passion – music. Sarah often spends her time recording and editing her own creations at her uncle’s recording studio. She feels that musicians are some of the most motivated and courageous people on this earth, and they have inspired her to pursue her own dreams of becoming a star.
When it came time to determine her wish, Sarah decided that her wish to have a home music studio would help her pursue this goal. Not only does this wish allow Sarah the opportunity to get lost in her favorite music, she can be inspired to create her own records that will surely touch the hearts of others.
This summer, Wynn Nightlife partnered with Make-A-Wish® Southern Nevada to grant Sarah’s wish. Not only did they provide the MacBook Pro chosen by Sarah to be her portable music studio, they provided the software for her to get started, along with future guided studio time where she can learn and produce her own music.
And to give her the opportunity to try out her future DJ persona, Wynn Nightlife hosted a surprise wish reveal like no other.
Upon arriving at Wynn Las Vegas via stretch limo, Sarah and her family were whisked off to Intrigue Nightclub where friends, family and some special guests waited. When Sarah entered, she was greeted by real-life music superstars The Chainsmokers, who guided Sarah to the stage on which she could test out her brand-new in-home music studio in her first Las Vegas residency. As Sarah directed the beats for those in attendance to dance, it was clear that she was at home on that stage, her wish come true for all to see.
