The Make-A-Wish Foundation in Canadia granted 17-year-old Candy hers: to visit England and experience the world of Harry Potter. With the help of Rogers Video and British Airways, the teen celebrated her 18th birthday with the cast and crew of the new Harry Potter movie, Prisoner of Azkaban:
Candy has a very rare and life-threatening blood disorder called Thalassemia. Ever since she was eight years old, she has wanted to see the sights of England. When the Harry Potter books and movies came out, she was enthralled and wanted more than ever to see this country and experience the world of the Hogwarts School of Wizardry.
