13-Year-Old with Cystic Fibrosis Made a Star for the Day

The Make-a-Wish of Connecticut Foundation made 13-year-old Brynn Hennessey’s dream of becoming famous come true by giving her a star-studded treatment in West Hartford.

On Wednesday, police officers escorted the Portland teen’s limo through the streets of West Hartford as crowds of people cheered her on. Hennessey even got to sign a couple autographs.

“Literally, I’m like having butterflies in my stomach. It’s crazy,” Hennessey said.

Brynn Hennessey was just weeks old when she was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, a genetic disorder that affects the lungs and makes it difficult to breath.

She has always wanted to become a star and Make A Wish made her dream come true Wednesday.

And her dream is not over yet. Hennessey will now travel to Los Angeles to make her acting debut in a TV commercial.
