Four-year-old cancer patient becomes a princess for the day thanks to local spa

By  | 

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB)-- Trinity Gyetvai is four years old and was diagnosed with stage four cancer. Trinity and her mother Sasha have been living in the Ronald McDonald house in Gainesville for the past two months. In that time, Trinity goes from doctors appointments to the hospital and stays isolated in the Ronald McDonald house.

Gyetvai said, "so if we do go, we go downstairs and she goes in the playroom for a few minutes. So this is the first time she's done something like this, since she's been diagnosed in September."

Trinity's mom, Sasha, was looking for a henna artist on facebook before their trip to Disney in March. The owner of Trinity's Day Spa Edwennia Moore saw Gyetvai's post and asked if Trinity could come in and be a princess for a day.

"It's bigger than the business, Moore said. "I'm definitely into giving back to the community, putting a smile on these girls faces, making them feel special, letting them know what it's like to have self care, to be pampered and let them know that they are a princess."

Moore collected over 140 get well cards for trinity from elementary schools across Gainesville. Trinity got her nails and toes polished, got her own bathrobe and was surprised with her favorite Disney princess, Ariel.

Trinity's cancer is now in remission and she had her final chemotherapy appointment last Sunday. Trinity's Day Spa wants her to not only fight like a princess but feel like a princess after a day of rest and relaxation.
