Teen's TV trip a wish come true

In mid-December, Jayna's No. 1 wish was granted when she and her mother were picked up at their home by limousine and brought to a hotel across from Giants Stadium to stay for the weekend in which they would meet the characters from the hit television program Jayna admired most.

On the day her wish was carried out, Jayna and Schenk were picked up at the hotel and brought to the set in Fort Lee, N.J., where Jayna not only got to meet her favorite characters, but got to sit in the director's chair and call the shots for part of the day, share several meals with the characters, and at the end of the day, have her hair and makeup done so that she could serve as an extra during one of the scenes in the episode "Snatched" that premiered on national television on Tuesday, Feb. 3.

Schenk said Jayna is still in remission and that the experience Make-A-Wish gave her daughter made up for the times Jayna was feeling so sick.

"She just glowed the whole day," Schenk said. "Her smile was from ear to ear."
