KEVIN

ELI

Eli is a very happy little boy that loves everyone!

SARAH

Sarah is 9 years old and lives in Spokane with her family. Sarah was battling brain cancer and during her surgery it went all tragically wrong, she now requires care 24/7 by her family and nurses. Sarah is non verbal so when we visited with the family we looked at what we can do to help make caring for her easier in some way. They would like to have a Hot Tub for warm water therapy. We are working on making this wish come true. 

MATTHEW

Matthew is all of 3 years old and full of life! This is Matthews story told by his mom ” Matthew has congenital muscular dystrophy SEPN1 this causes him to suffer from hypotonia, a severely weak neck, rigid spine, breathing difficulties, and eating challenges. Eventually he will need to use a motorized chair. His lungs will also become weaker. He already uses 3 different machines to improve / maintain his lung function”. He loves the show Umi Zoomi and his favorite movies are the Incredibles, Shrek and Despicable Me. His favorite food is pizza! We visited with Matthew and it has been decided that we will re-visit his wish when he is 5 years old. He has no idea what a wish is so we are giving him time to get a bit older to make the decision.  

JAYDA

Please keep Jayda’s family, friends and loved ones in your thoughts and prayers, as she was unable to overcome her battle against osteosarcoma in December 2017.  She was 18 years old and lived in Ephrata, WA.  She was very involved in soccer, basketball and track and had accepted a soccer scholarship to play for Walla Walla Community College.  By all accounts, Jayda was an amazing young lady and will be missed by many.  We will work with her family at a later date to see how her wish can live on.
