Kathy Levin of Sedona and Judy Wimberley of Winslow, both Make-A-Wish volunteers, came to Payson May 20 to Shea Nelsen, with her wish of taking her horse, Stormie, to attend a workshop with John Lyons, "the most trusted horseman in America."
The Make-A-Wish Foundation will make possible Shea's week-long trip to Parachute, Colo., where Lyons is giving a workshop.
"She is so excited," Karyn Nelsen said.
A year ago, on her 15th birthday (May 30), Shea was in terrible pain and was diagnosed with leukemia the following day.
This year, Shea was delighted to be able to enjoy her birthday while riding Stormie.
"These people are amazing and have made one girl extremely happy," Karyn said.
