2019 Walk For Wishes - Milwaukee, WI

Antonia's Fans of Japan

Help us make a difference!

For the past 3 years, Tribus Services and our employees have partnered with Make-a-Wish Wisconsin to sponsor the wishes of wish kids. This year, we are sponsoring one of our employee's children - Antonia (her story is included below). We started fundraising this spring and will continue into October, by:

    • participating in and fundraising for the Walk for Wishes in August 2019
    • hosting a fundraising event in October 2019

Antonia's wish is big! In April 2020, she is going to Japan. Some of the things she may want to do while she is there include (but are not limited to):

    • Mt. Fuji
    • Tokyo
    • Kyoto
    • Temples
    • Markets
    • Bamboo Groves
    • Mineral Baths
    • River Tour
    • Studio Ghibli Movie Studio

To help raise funds for Antonia's wish, join our team and donate today! 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. We, the Tribus Services Community – including our friends and family, thank you for your donation and continued support! 

To join our team and walk with us at Walk for Wishes 2019, select 'Join My Team' above and register (by August 7, 2019 to receive a team shirt). Event details can be found under '2019 Walk for Wishes' above. To donate, select 'Donate Now' above.

Antonia's Story

Antonia is 11 years old and loves American Dolls, sewing, Gravity Falls, and Roblox. She has been diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis 1 (NF), a condition where small tumors called gliomas grow in brain tissue, nerve tissue, and along the spinal cord. While gliomas often remain dormant, Antonia has one in her brain that has grown slightly and requires treatment with chemotherapy to help reduce the pressure it’s placing on her nerves. Antonia’s treatment will last one year, and her family is hopeful to see a positive difference, as people with NF generally respond well to chemotherapy. The goal is to stabilize the glioma and prevent further growth. While the prognosis is good, the diagnosis has had an impact on her family.

“The news of her glioma growing was disconcerting. We had been monitoring it for a few years through MRIs and always knew that it could possibly grow and require treatment. The doctors and nurses at Children’s Hospital of WI were very reassuring though, and once we realized that this would be more of a chronic condition rather than a life-threatening one, it was less daunting. We also wanted to make sure from the beginning that our older daughter wouldn’t feel left behind as we focused more on the health needs of Antonia”, Mike Brunelle, Antonia’s Father and Tribus Services Customer Care Representative, said.
