Kenewe Sekobolo (17)
Dream: To have a birthday party
Kenewe is a bright and ambitious young lady battling Hodgkins Lymphoma. Kenewe doesn’t let her illness hold her back and has a positive outlook on life. She wants to be a business woman when she finishes school.
Her dream was to have a party with all of her friends and cousins and to have a beautiful outfit to wear; her illness had caused her to lose a lot of weight and her clothes didn’t fit anymore. She had specific instructions for her party; there had to be sweets, chocolates, crème soda, sausage rolls, and red velvet cupcakes. The party was graciously hosted by Goldfields and the theme was Paris, Kenewe’s favourite place and Reach for a Dream also made sure to include Kenewe’s favourite colour – sky blue.
Reach for a Dream made sure this is exactly what she got.
The party was a surprise and when Kenewe arrived at the venue with her friends she was very surprised to see Reach for a Dream there. Our dream-makers told Kenewe they had something they wanted to show her and together they entered the party venue. It was the most beautiful sight she had ever seen. She was so happy to see her dream birthday party. Reach for a Dream then presented Kenewe with a new outfit. Kenewe had a great time at her birthday party, laughing and dancing with all of her friends. Kenewe’s dream birthday party had been realized.
“The party was fabulous, she can’t stop talking about it. Thank you for the hope and brightness you brought into all our lives.”
