At the end of 2020 we were thrilled to be notified that Powell’s Supermarket had been matched with our 2020 Wish Child – gorgeous 6-year-old Lauren Tucker of Bay Roberts. We are so excited to officially say that we will be granting Lauren’s wish, which is to visit Disney World with her family when it is safe to travel. Lauren’s mom, Lisa, says her daughter loves to visit our newly renovated store, just as she did as a child. Lisa recalls strolling the aisles of our former Powell’s Bay Roberts location, and the fact that a local business is making her daughter’s wish happen has made the announcement even more special for the family.
Lauren is described by her parents as an inquisitive little girl who loves to draw, colour and sing. She also loves playing with her 9-year-old brother Logan who is her hero and favourite companion.
Lauren was diagnosed with spastic quadriplegia cerebral palsy at a young age. Since then the Tucker family have faced much illness and change. However, they say the anticipation of this Wish will make Lauren’s future treatment plan a little brighter. The promise of a Wish provides the fuel they need to push forward. And we are so grateful to make that happen for this deserving girl and her family.
Lauren and her brother can’t wait for the fun, adventure and sunshine that comes with a Wish at Disney, and their parents look forward to seeing the glow of wonderment and magic on the faces of their little boy and girl.
This Wish wouldn’t be possible without the tremendous support from our amazing customers throughout Conception Bay North. We would also like to acknowledge our management and staff throughout the Powell Group of Companies as well as our vendor partners who all played a vital role in making this happen for Lauren. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!
We can’t wait to give this sweet girl and her family a fitting send off when the time comes!
