Flash Mob at Medical City Children’s Hospital to Reveal Patient Wish

Hospital employees to surprise 11-year-old pediatric cancer patient with surprise beach vacation

A pediatric cancer patient from Dallas will be surprised when she has her wish revealed by Make-A-Wish at Medical City Children’s Hospital on Monday, May 8 at 12:30 p.m. Medical City Children’s Hospital employees will reveal the wish through a coordinated flash mob dance. Make-A-Wish North Texas will send the patient and her family on a beach vacation where they will stay in an overwater bungalow. 

11-year-old Alex has Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a cancer that develops from cells in the lymphatic system (part of the body's immune system). Her parents, Cody and Brandi, will be present to help with the surprise. Alex wished for a beach vacation in an overwater bungalow to be able to spend time with her family and dive right into the ocean.

In coordination with National Nurses Week, May 6 through May 12, Medical City Children’s Hospital nurses will participate in this wish reveal and flash mob. This is a rare opportunity for Medical City Children’s Hospital nurses to take part in a wish reveal.
