Hope has been diagnosed with a disease called spina bifida, a birth defect that occurs when a portion of the spinal column fails to develop and close properly. In Hope’s case, her spina bifida derives from being born a partial, conjoined twin. The condition has caused Hope to undergo more than 50 surgeries; the most critical surgery occurring at just 3-months-old. She is able to walk short distances with the help of a walker, but mostly relies on a wheelchair for mobility.
For her wish, Hope got to enjoy some fun-filled days on a tropical cruise to Cozumel. On the ship, Hope was treated like royalty with spa treatments, gifts, a tour of the bridge and much, much more. She was even given the chance to swim with a dolphin – a real dream-come-true for her.
