Shelbi Zeien, 17, of San Ramon, left, and her best friend from South Carolina, Miranda Vaughan, 18, get a round of applause as they walk into Macy's in Walnut Creek, Calif., on Friday Dec. 14, 2012. Zeien has been battling Crohn's disease for six years, and Macy's gave her a big send off, along with The Make-A-Wish Foundation, which is sending her to meet Justin Bieber next month in Colorado.
