I am excited to be participating in the 2018 Brave The Bay. I am committed to raising money for Make-A-Wish to help grant the wishes of children with critical illnesses. With your help, it’s possible.
Our beautiful, brave Bramble just turned 8 (!!). Many of you know she has an extremely rare neurological disorder called CDKL5; there were less than 700 known cases worldwide when she was diagnosed in 2013. This random genetic mutation inhibits the production of crucial amino acids and proteins necessary for typical brain development. Most kids with CDKL5 are girls, have multiple seizures daily, and cannot walk or talk. But through all of that, Bramble has worked incredibly hard to slowly but surely build her strength to sit up, to do swim and horse therapies, to start to communicate (especially about food!), and most recently, to start working on standing.
SUPER SPECIAL THANKS to Make-A-Wish, Alaska Airlines, and Moana herself (!!) for Bramble's AMAZING BIRTHDAY TRIP to the AULANI DISNEY RESORT in Hawaii, and to all our families and friends who've helped and supported us and sent Bramble their good thoughts and love over the years. This fundraiser is our way to help the next family's Make-A-Wish dream come true.
