“Emileigh was in the NICU for over 3 months after she was born”
Born premature, Emileigh was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and remained in the NICU for three months. The little girl suffers from congenital spastic diplegia which manifests as an especially high and constant “stiffness” in her joints. She also has severe seizures and asthma attacks that have landed her in the hospital numerous times since birth. Emileigh requires a wheelchair for long distances, uses ankle foot orthosis to help her walk, and suffers from memory loss.
Despite her daily battles, Emileigh is a loving and compassionate child that loves to help others. Kids Wish Network was excited to help Emileigh and grant her wish to visit magical Disneyland in sunny California. The charity sent Emileigh and the Marsh family on an all-expense paid wish trip to visit the California theme parks where they stayed at fabulous accommodations, dined at local restaurants and enjoyed all the parks had to offer.
Emileigh is currently in good condition after her wish trip; she takes daily medication to help control her seizures but faces every day with positivity.
