Sixteen years ago, Jillian Christian was granted the wish of a lifetime.
Jillian was just about thirteen when she was diagnosed with Lupus. From then on she went through extensive treatment, but remained strong throughout the entire process. She loved Beanie Babies and watching her favorite talk show host on television everyday. Jillian dreamed of a day when she could meet her idol in person. Thanks to Make-A-Wish®, her wish was granted: Jillian went to New York City, where she was a part of her favorite celebrity talk show host’s show for a day. Since her wish Jillian has been striving to make happy memories whenever she can. She finished high school and went on to college and didn’t stop until she got her master’s degree. She married the sweetest man that she knew and is about to celebrate their 5th anniversary.
