My Wish is to Go on a Shopping Spree!

Name: Vanessa
Age: 9
State: AZ

Vanessa is an outgoing nine year old who loves going to the mall and playing board games. Her favorite band is Mindless Behavior and her favorite TV show is Criminal Minds. In school, Vanessa likes her math classes, reading and being a part of the track team.

Vanessa was playing games outside when a stray ball hit her in the chest. Later that evening, she was having a hard time breathing. Thinking it was just asthma, Vanessa and her mom waited to see if it cleared up, but it only got worse and she was rushed to the hospital. Doctors discovered that one of Vanessa’s lungs had collapsed and her heart had been pushed to one side of her chest. She was immediately taken into surgery and spent two weeks in the hospital, where tests proved she had Langerhans cell histiocytosis – a very rare condition that causes an excess of white blood cells and can create severe difficulties throughout the body’s systems. Vanessa’s doctors installed a port in her chest to receive chemotherapy treatments and she follows a strict medication regimen.

For her wish, Vanessa wants to indulge her love of shopping with a full-on shopping spree! Get ready to shop, Vanessa, because your wish is about to come true!
