Margaret wishes to make cake pops with Rosanna Pansino

I’m just being a kid and having fun!

- Wish kid, Margaret

Margaret assisted Rosanna with decorating Winnie the Pooh themed cake pops and played the game of "Life" together.

Margaret, her mom and younger sister, Hailey, took their first airplane ride from NY to LA to bake with YouTube phenomena, Rosanna Pansino.  Rosanna is famous for her Nerdie Nummies cookbook and has more than 8 million followers on YouTube.  Margaret and Rosanna baked Winnie the Pooh cake pops together, played the board game “Life”, and laughed over Hailey’s amazing Pokemon card collection. 

After the visit, Rosanna posted this message to her millions of followers, “Yesterday I had the joy of meeting and hanging out with an inspirational girl named Margaret through the Make-A-Wish Foundation. At the age of 15, Margaret has to get dialysis 3 times a week. She really impressed me with her great attitude, sense of humor and kindness to everyone around her.

When Margaret and her family walked in I could immediately tell that it was going to be a fun visit.  To top it all off, after hanging out for a few hours they gave me the best gift ever: Boxes of Girl Scout Samoa cookies (my favorite)! Margaret’s family is involved with Girl Scouts just like my sister was growing up. They also made me an honorary member of their troop. I couldn’t believe that their badge logo was even a unicorn!  Margaret: It was a pleasure to meet you and I had a wonderful time getting to know you and your family. You are one tough cookie and I am honored to have been your wish.”

Margaret also got to see some amazing LA sights including the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Santa Monica Pier, Disneyland, and Universal.  After an event filled trip, Margaret told her mom, “I’m just being a kid and having fun!”

(Margaret) really impressed me with her great attitude, sense of humor and kindness to everyone around her. ”
