Erick is a positive and outgoing 5-year-old. He loves going to church and listening to gospel music and singing along with his favorite songs. He enjoys sports, and used to play basketball and t-ball. He is a big fan of “Sponge Bob” and Disney’s “Cars.” He is a people person and loves to play with his dog.
As a baby, Erick was diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease and Bladder Retention. These illnesses cause a back up of fluid in the kidneys, which required Erick to be catheterized every two hours. He started emergency dialysis on August 18 of this year, as he was in stage five renal failure. Just last week, Erick had a kidney transplant, and is recovering.
When a wish coordinator asked Erick what his wish is, he said that he wanted to go to Disney World. Get ready to sing all the way to Florida, Erick, because you are getting your wish!
