Teenager's Wish Comes True

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

It's the ultimate dream for any teenage girl. 18 year old Mercedes Sana was given $2700 dollars to spend on anything she wanted to buy.

The teenager's shopping spree was granted by the Make-a-Wish Foundation. It was during spring break when Mercedes began to feel sick. She went to the doctor, and it turned out she was experiencing liver failure.

Her mother was told she wouldn't survive without a donor. Amazingly, Mercedes was able to receive a new liver and is now recovering.

Mercedes said, "I feel very lucky. I'm still here with my friends and family able to breath again. I'm grateful to have a donor." The shopping spree came just before Christmas. Mercedes actually used some of the money to buy her mom and siblings a few gifts as well.
