Emmett will be turning 5 on February 28th which is National Rare Disease day. He has Krabbe Leukodystrophy which is a degenerative nerve disease without a cure right now. Unfortunately, Emmett was diagnosed too late and has gone from a neurotypical developing child to loosing all of his abilities except his hearing and his cognition. He can not eat, move, talk, swallow, see, smile, and laugh but in spite of those things, he taught us how to communicate with him by blinking. He blinks once for yes/positive response and twice for no/negative response. We are teaching him Braille and try to make the most of every day. For Emmett a trip to see snow at Mt. Hood would be the sweetest Gifted Wish. Donate Today

He wanted one last fishing trip
After 103 years of love and laughter, AJ's wish was to go fishing once more before he passed.
Because you cared and gave, AJ was provided special transportation to a lake. He was able to enjoy time with his family, bask in the sun, cast his reel, and rest by the tranquility of the water one more time.
She wanted to see the ocean one more time
Stefany wished for one last trip to the beach feel the ocean breeze and stroll along the shore one last time.
Paralyzed from the waist down and wheelchair-bound, Stefany thought her wish seemed impossible until you made it come true through Gifted Wishes!
Thank you for helping Stefany with medical transport and a room at a local hotel with easy access to the beach.
He wanted to leave behind his Purple Heart
A World War II veteran, he had been awarded the Purple Heart many years before. However, due to finances and his own self-described survivor's guilt, he did not accept the award.
Your donations gifted him with the funds to finally receive his Purple Heart so that he could wear it while attending a Veteran's Day Parade.
