During August of this year, 7-year-old Avneet Seehra became a princess for a day, thanks to the “Make a Wish Foundation”. Avneet, who suffers from Cystinosis, was given a make over, taken to a local gallery by limousine, treated to tea and finally had a ride in a carriage drawn by horses, Bumble and Spot, as people nearby cheered her on.
A few weeks previous, Avneet’s older brother, Eeshar who is 10 years old and also suffers from Cystinosis, had his wish come true as he directed a music video, thanks to the “Make a Wish Foundation”. During Avneet’s day as a princess, Eeshar was able to use his new director skills to film his sister’s special day.
