In a heartwarming display of compassion and generosity, Make-A-Wish Malaysia has partnered with Sunway Malls and Theme Parks to celebrate the fulfilment of their 1000th wish.

The ‘Pearl of Hope: A Royal Celebration’ event, set to take place at Sunway Lagoon on 19 May, is inspired by the dream of nine-year-old cancer patient Ayra Medina Fizrullah.

Ayra’s wish is to become a mermaid princess, and Make-A-Wish Malaysia, along with Sunway Malls and Theme Parks, is determined to make her dream a reality.

This enchanting celebration will transform Sunway Lagoon into a magical underwater kingdom for Ayra.

The event will feature a series of curated underwater-themed activities, allowing Ayra and her family to immerse themselves in a world of wonder and joy, momentarily forgetting the challenges they face.

A Brave Little Girl’s Fight Against the Odds

Ayra is battling stage 4 neuroblastoma, the most advanced stage of this childhood cancer.

At stage 4, the cancer has spread to distant parts of the body, such as lymph nodes, bones, bone marrow, liver, skin, and/or other organs.

She is currently undergoing treatment and besides Make-A-Wish Malaysia, she has received support from organizations.

In 2022, a heart-wrenching revelation emerged from the Penang Football Association that her family bearing the crushing weight of an astronomical treatment cost: RM386,216.

Recognizing the immense struggle faced by Ayra and her family, they made the decision to use their influential platform to bring her story to the forefront.

By shining a light on Ayra’s cancer battle and the staggering treatment costs, they aimed to mobilize the community and rally support behind this brave little girl.
