Steffani’s wish to be an actress landed her on set with Brad Pitt!

Steffani was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a cancer found in lymph tissue, in 2007 at the age of fourteen. While going through treatment, Steffani was referred to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Central & South Texas. The Foundation grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. When asked what would be the one thing she would wish for if she could have anything, Steffani replied, “I wish to be an actress.”

The Make-A-Wish staff went to work to create a magical experience for Steffani. In the spring of 2008, her dream came true when she was given the opportunity to visit the set ofThe Tree of Life, a movie being filmed in Austin. Her mother, Tamara, said it couldn’t have come at a better time as she had finished her treatments just six weeks prior.

FYI. Webmiss was away for a couple days to visit Krakow, Poland. I’m home now. A big thanks to my lovely friend and SB staffmember La_miga for keeping SimplyBrad.com updated!

  1. Very beautiful cultural city. Would’ve wanted to stay longer, just didn’t have time to visit and see everything we wanted to. But yes, Poland surprised me with its beauty :)
