endured multiple open-heart surgeries. Despite this, Lexi has persevered
against all odds. Thanks to Make a Wish, Hasbro and DHX, Lexi was given

invite Lexi as a surprise Guest of Honor took almost no thought. Pre-registration is still open for a few more days! Get your badge before the price goes up at the door, and get excited to meet Lexi and all the rest of our Guests of Honor in Milwaukee in less than two weeks!
