Jeremi is a funny eight-year-old who loves watching Spongebob Squarepants and Disney movies on TV. He’s great at math and he has a puppy named Muffin. Jeremi also enjoys playing Pokemon games on his Nintendo DS and listening to the music of Justin Bieber.
Jeremi was born prematurely with a condition called Eagle-Barrett syndrome. Also known as prune belly syndrome, it causes very poor development of the abdominal muscles and other issues. Jeremi also had a hole in his kidney and a heart murmur. Newborn Jeremi endured a surgery to repair the hole in his kidney and his mother had to inject medicine directly into his kidneys for a month afterwards. For the heart murmur, Jeremi suffered through two separate surgeries. Although his doctors initially only gave him a 50% chance to live past the age of two, Jeremi will soon be turning eight. He takes daily medications and his kidney function is only at 75%.
For his wish, Jeremi got to relax and enjoy all the sights at Disney World and Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida. He had a blast and the only thing he liked more than meeting Mickey Mouse was spending quality time with his family.
