Brynn - I wish to be a celebrity

Diagnosed as a toddler, Brynn’s disease means daily dates with a vibrating vest and medications to improve her lung function. Thanks to her wish, Brynn has discovered her unlimited potential and unlocked the kind of positive feelings proven to improve her odds in the fight against her illness.

“When others tell me my limits, I prove them wrong and drop the mic,” says 13-year-old Brynn, a cystic fibrosis survivor. Diagnosed as a toddler, Brynn’s disease means daily dates with a vibrating vest and medications to improve her lung function. Though some would say  the symptoms of cystic fibrosis make a career in singing or acting impossible, Make-A-Wish helped Brynn discover her inner superstar.

Brynn’s wish to be a celebrity started with a whirlwind press tour including a radio interview, photo shoot, and press conference. Then it was time to pack her bags and fly the nearly 3,000 miles from Hartford to Hollywood to film a television commercial for Southwest Airlines. Between memorizing her lines and keeping her fans updated on Instagram, there was no time for anxiety or depression, only excitement.

Thanks to her wish, Brynn has discovered her unlimited potential and unlocked the kind of positive feelings proven to improve her odds in the fight against her illness. When asked where she’s going from here, Brynn tells us it’s time to conquer the silver screen!
