Patients of the Stollery Children’s hospital felt like they were in a fairy tale when Princess Belle from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast came to visit them on Feb. 21.
Julianna Andreson, the 15 year old entrepreneur who began her own business Party with Princess Jewels, took on a new venture as she donated her time to bring light and laughter to hospitalized children. “It was so rewarding to bring a smile to their faces and see them light up,” she says.
The idea came to her after she travelled to St. Albert to take part in Hunter’s Fight for a Cure Foundation’s Family Fun Day.
This fundraising event was held in honour of Hunter Kuzik who has a rare blood disorder called Diamond Blackfan Anemia, which means that he does not produce red blood cells and requires blood transfusions every three weeks.
