Girl with rare cancer fulfills one of her dreams
A Texas girl fighting a rare and aggressive form of cancer  made one of her biggest dreams come true Wednesday night, when she walked the runway at New York Fashion Week.
 
Dressed in a custom-made, ruby-red gown, 11-year-old Trinity Faith Moran walked beside designer Naeem Khan during his final show at the Skylight Moynihan Station.
 
 

Quero começar a falar sobre o desfile de hoje de Naeem Khan com a imagem que mais me tocou durante essa NYFW. Essa menina linda da foto se chama Trinity Faith Moran e tem 11 anos. De uma forma inesperada ela foi diagnosticada com um tipo raro e extremamente agressivo de câncer, o que a fez ser submetida a sessões de quimio e radioterapia. Apaixonada por moda, Trinity foi escolhida através da fundação "Make a Wish" para participar do desfile de hoje de Naeem Khan. O vestido foi especialmente desenhado para ela pelo estilista. Um belo gesto e a realização de um sonho. Força, Trinity! ?? Beautiful, beautiful gesture! @maryalicestephenson and @naeemkhan ?????? -#naeemkhan #trinityfaithmoran #makeawishfoundation #sonhos #gesto #amor #solidariedade #força #bestrong #felicidade #guerreira #nyfw

Moran, who has rhabdomyosarcoma -- a life-threatening cancer involving muscle tissue -- shared her dream of walking in a fashion show with the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
 
That’s when Khan and stylist Mary Alice Stephenson stepped in, offering Trinity a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Stephenson has reportedly worked with Make-a-Wish for the past 15 years.
 
"Trinity is the cutest, sweetest girl ever," Khan told Mashable. "When [Stephenson] asked me to do this, it's like, how can you not? It's a wish."
 
As far as Trinity’s brave fight goes, she is reportedly scheduled to have surgery in five weeks.
