Shantell “Shannie” Pooser was granted a special wish for her 17th birthday. She worked as an American Airlines flight attendant. The teen is living with Down syndrome and fighting a terminal illness. Her mom, Deanna Miller Berry, says being a flight attendant was just one of the items on Shannie’s bucket list, which she is determined to fulfill. Berry says she hopes the list will motivate her daughter to keep living. They are already working on the next big surprise for Pooser’s 18th birthday.
