When he was only 6-months-old, Grant went into renal failure. At the age of one, he received a kidney transplant from his father. Since then, he’s been under anesthesia over 20 times for dialysis. Just last year, Grant was in critical condition and was taken to the hospital. He must endure a shot every week to keep his hemoglobin levels up in his battle against anemia and he has to have his blood drawn every month. In addition, Grant is deaf and has had to endure surgery to place a cochlear implant at 3-years-old.
For his wish, Grant wanted to visit Disney World in Florida! He had a wonderful time and, when he got home, we asked him what he liked best about his trip; Grant replied that he couldn’t pick one favorite thing because there were so many favorites! However, Grant did let us know that he loved Magic Kingdom most of all, but he also loved the ride Space Mountain and the Kraken rollercoaster at SeaWorld.
