Make-A-Wish Monday: Getting a new best friend for a wish


Nine-year-old Nadia Wiggins is outgoing, athletic and bright.

Nadia lost vision in her left eye due to a malignant tumor in her optic nerve, but she endured the chemotherapy and treatment.

When first contacted by Make-A-Wish, Nadia considered going to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood.

But she continued to think about what she really wanted, and the answer was easy: a male, shadowed pug puppy named for her favorite country music star.

Nadia and her new friend Garth Brooks joined News 3 Monday morning to talk about her wish.
