Wish moment

Dancing is Xanne’s passion. When the 17 years old was diagnosed with a germ cell tumor, she told Make-A-Wish that her dearest wish was to have a professional dance photoshoot with her best friend at a unique location. Xanne looked forward to her wish during her treatment journey.

On her wish day, Xanne and her friend were picked up by limousine and brought to the beauty salon to have their hair and makeup done. After grabbing lunch at a nearby hotel, the young girls made their way to the Rijksmuseum where they got into their costumes and prepared to pose against the beautiful backdrop of Rembrandt’s Nachtwacht. The resulting photos and memories will be cherished forever by Xanne, her friends and family. Will you help more children, just like Xanne?
