2019 Walk For Wishes - Las Vegas

Dancing for Lexi

This is our first-year walking for Walk for Wishes. Lexi was born with spina bifida and had multiple surgeries throughout her life.  Despite Lexi using a walker and wheelchair she insisted on being involved. She participated in dance, gymnastics, singing, piano, and musical theater.  Lexi was in the hospital suffering complications from surgery when she was nine. Make-A-Wish was able to grant a "rush wish “for Lexi. Lexi was unable to speak after the surgery but could communicate with her eyes by blinking.  Lexi loved High School Musical and was so excited when Vanessa Hudgens surprised her. She wanted to make sure that everyone at school knew that Vanessa had visited her. Make-A-Wish reached out to our family and offered tremendous support during this time. Lexi was transported to Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah and she requested that all her gifts come with her.  Throughout this difficult time for our family you could still see the light in Lexi's eyes and the excitement from her wish being granted.  It was one thing that brought our family joy when times were bleak.  Lexi passed away four weeks after her wish was granted.  Our family will forever be grateful that Lexi had her wish granted. We are excited to walk and fundraise for this year’s Walk for Wishes.  Together, we can raise money for Make-A-Wish to help grant the wishes of children with critical illnesses. Their wishes and diagnoses may vary, but something unites each of them: the need to feel optimistic and to think about something greater than their next medical treatment.

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.
