This is Gabriela, aka (Gaby). An incredible little angel who appreciates every minute life gives her. Since she was a baby my mother instinct always had me on the edge undering if there was something wrong in her development. Sadly, 3 years ago my questions were answered, my Gaby was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation. A condition that causes for your cerebellum to herniate into the spinal cord causing a lot symptoms. With time we also learned she had Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension, Hydrocephalus, Syringomyelia, Noonan Syndrome, Central sleep Apnea and Scoliosis. As a result she's had 13 brain surgeries, 3 shunts and 1 episode of unresponsive. All this in just 3 years, but we continue to pray and hope for a better future. This conditions can be life threatening. Children like Gaby who sufer from life threatening conditions or simply conditions that change their live style, deserve a Wish Come True. They deserve to feel like children, to smile, laugh and have a day or days worry free, of doctors appointments, treatments. Hospitals or surgeries. Thanks to Make A Wish Foundation, Gaby's dream came true to go on a Disney Cruise for her Birthday, to say the least it was an expensive trip and we didn't have to pay for anything other any extra stuff we wanted to do. An unforgettable experience it was for sure. However, this wouldn't happen without the support of the community; which is why this year is my time to give back. I am excited to walk and fundraise for this year’s Walk For Wishes. I am committed to raising money for Make-A-Wish to help grant the wishes of children with critical illnesses. A wish gives children renewed energy and strength, brings families closer together and unites communities.
These life-changing wishes are only possible because of supporters like us. A wish experience can truly change a child’s life, and so can we.
