Kids Wish Network Gives Skylar “The World”

Beautiful six and a half-year old Skylar was born extremely premature and only weighed one pound at birth. Skylar continues to need a feeding tube and although she is growing taller, she remains critically underweight. Mild cerebral palsy paralized Skylar’s left vocal cord and she must use a voice enhancer.

Despite overwhelming physical problems, spunky Skylar is very much like other girls her age. Her favorite movie is 101 Dalmatians and favorite toy is a stuffed Dalmatian. Skylar likes all kinds of music and adores her bunny Charmin who lives up to his name and is “squeezably soft”.

When Terri McConn, a Wish Coordinator for Kids Wish Network, asked the little girl from North Carolina what her first wish would be, Skylar said she wanted to go to the Florida theme parks-Disney World, Animal Kingdom, and Sea World. Terri quickly went to work and it wasn’t long before Skylar and her family headed to Give Kids The World in Orlando for a dream vacation come true.
