CANON, Ga.- A little girl with a life-threatening illness has the wish of her life with Kids Wish Network.
Three-year-old Jasmine is a very spunky little girl with a bright smile and a beautiful personality. She just loves baby dolls and riding in her Barbie car. Jazzy’s favorite color is pink and she is a very loving little girly-girl.
When Jasmine was born, she was diagnosed with a congenital heart disease called truncus arteriosus type three. This is a rare complex birth defect of the heart in which only one artery leaves the heart, instead of the normal pattern where two great arteries – the aorta and the pulmonary artery – carry blood away from the heart. This commonly causes the heart to become overactive and other problems may also arise. Little Jasmine also has a hole in her heart. Since her birth, she has endured three surgeries and must be under constant supervision.
After learning about Kids Wish Network through a newspaper article, Jasmine’s mother, Jean, gave them a call. It wasn’t long before little Jasmine made her one wish known to Wish Coordinator, Vanessa: to visit Walt Disney World in Florida. Along with the assistance of Wish Funding Specialist, Donna, and some outstanding sponsors, Vanessa worked her magic and set up an awesome family getaway for Jasmine and her family. This fabulous vacation included a stay at The Royal Plaza Hotel, dinner at the Pirates Dinner Adventure Theater and, of course, tickets to the Walt Disney World Resort and all of the other major Orlando theme parks!
Once in Orlando, Jasmine and her family enjoyed a real action-packed vacation; their itinerary was booked with fantastic activities and awesome places to visit. Even their dinners were planned out! Kids Wish Network thought of everything and Jasmine had the time of her young life on her wish trip.
