Miracle was born with sickle cell disease. This is a condition in which her body creates irregularly shaped blood cells that get caught up in the veins and arteries, blocking normal blood flow and causing a great deal of pain. On her 13th birthday, Miracle almost died after her blood flow was so backed up that it caused her hemoglobin levels to rise to dangerous heights and her body’s organ systems started to fail. Miracle has been hospitalized hundreds of times in her life and the frequent bouts of pain she experiences are so extreme that she is temporarily paralyzed. She has had so many blood transfusions that she now has an overload of iron in her blood and she is not able to have any more transfusions. From the many injections she has endured, Miracle’s doctors and nurses are unable to use any of her veins any longer and she will soon have to have a port implanted to receive her medications.

Miracle had a blast on her shopping spree wish at the Florida Mall. She loved shopping for everything she wanted and being treated like a VIP. She even got her own private room for trying on clothes! Although Miracle shopped all day, she didn’t have enough time to use all the gift cards she was given by the awesome stores, and now she can’t wait to go back to shop some more!
