7-Year-Old Suffering From Epilepsy Gets Surprise Birthday

Posted: Updated:
CHESTER COUNTY, Pa. -

A Chester County girl suffering from an illness was surprised on Monday with the birthday of her dreams during Chester County Hospital's annual Pediatric Symposium.

7-year-old Addison Wright, who is the daughter of a Chester County Hospital ER nurse, has been suffering from epilepsy. She has endured several hospitalizations, painful tests and medications, but has remained extremely strong throughout the whole ordeal.

Her wish has been to have a birthday party at Sweet n Sassy Salon; however, due to the financial constraints of her family from medical bills, her family hasn't been able to make her wish come true.

Well, thanks to Little Smiles Philadelphia, Addison was finally granted her wish

Little Smiles surprised Addison with a basket of goodies from Sweet n Sassy. Addison also found out that she is having her dream birthday party on June 13th at Sweet n Sassy with 12 of her friends. The party even includes makeovers and a limo ride.
