Jamila Searches for Treasures

Jamila's wish to have a shopping spree.

“ Jamila was swept away by the special treatment she received ”

Jamila is a stylish 14-year-old who is living with a hematologic disorder. She enjoys dressing up and having the latest trends. That’s why she wished for the ultimate shopping adventure – a shopping spree in Florida. Jamila and her family flew to Miami where they stayed in an oceanfront hotel.  After a night spent dreaming of the next day’s purchases, she was off to Aventura Mall in celebrity style – riding in a limousine with her family.

Once they arrived at the mall, Jamila was swept away by the special treatment she received. She was greeted with a big welcome sign and she was provided with personal shoppers, decorated shopping carts and gift bags at many of her favorite stores. She twirled with delight as she coordinated outfits to try on without having to look at the price tags. Jamila purchased clothes, jewelry, several pairs of sneakers, accessories and some electronics. To cap off her fabulous day, she and her family enjoyed a delicious meal at the Cheesecake Factory, where she reveled in the day’s excitement.
