Make-A-Wish helps surprise Long Island girl with car parade, Apple products

CENTRAL ISLIP, Long Island (WABC) -- There was a big surprise on Saturday from the Make-A-Wish Foundation for a Long Island girl.

The pandemic forced 12-year-old Kelly to re-imagine her original wish.

Kelly, who has a congenital heart condition, wanted to go on a Disney cruise last year, but it was canceled.

On Saturday, a car parade of school friends came to her Central Islip home to present her new wish of Apple products, bunk beds, and a special mural for her bedroom.

April 29th is World Wish Day - the anniversary of the wish that sparked the founding of Make-A-Wish.
