Novalie is an 8-year-old from Cross Plains, Wisconsin who suffers from cystic fibrosis, a life-threatening chronic disease of the lungs and digestive system. Despite lengthy daily treatments and medications, her condition can still leave her weak and short of breath.
When she learned that Make-A-Wish® Wisconsin would be granting her one true wish, Novalie didn't hesitate—she wished to become a rock star, with her very own custom-made outfit, hit single, music video and world premiere event.
Novalie collaborated with a variety of music industry professionals on her journey to become a rock star. From vocal training to costume fittings to karaoke rehearsals,
Novalie worked hard to prove that she has what it takes to shine.
Like every wish, Novalie's rock star experience could not have come true without the help of Make-A-Wish® supporters across the state. By generously giving their time, talents and treasures, these wish champions Share the Power of a Wish® with children and families in need, replacing fear and doubt with healthy doses of hope, strength and joy!
