It was a dream come true for 15-year-old Lucia Funaro. She was given the chance to sing the National Anthem in the world's most famous arena, Madison Square Garden, on Monday night. The Garden of Dreams Foundation teamed up allowing multiple kids battling illness take part in many different pre-game ceremonies. This all took place during the New York Rangers hockey game.
Lucia went through several life-threatening situations from birth until a later age. She had open-heart surgery at only three months old to repair two holes that doctors found. Then Lucia was diagnosed with Trisomy 18 and an early stage of cancer. Along with many other problems that continued arising, Lucia continued to remain calm during the whole process.
