THE STORY:

September 13, 2000, and were thrilled to bring him home to Riverbank where he has grown up with his older sister, Ricki and younger sister, Natalie. When Gabriel began walking, Richard and Michelle noticed that he was very clumsy and fell down a lot. They discussed Gabriel’s symptoms with his pediatrician, who soon diagnosed him with muscular dystrophy. Gabriel’s condition progressed quickly, and his muscles deteriorated to the point that he became confined to a wheelchair at a very young age. Despite his limitations and worsening condition, Gabriel continues to attend school with his friends. Gabriel likes the color red, Kit Kat bars, Mexican food and listening to music. He is a fan of The Fast and the Furious, the Oakland Raiders and basketball player Stephen Curry. Gabriel enjoys studying science and playing video games. Gabriel was thrilled to have the chance to choose a wish, and thought very carefully through all of his options. One of Gabriel’s ideas was to meet the Golden State Warriors and watch them play basketball, because he is a huge fan of the team and would be very excited to watch the game live. However, an idea soon came to Gabriel that made him look forward to his wish even more. Gabriel wanted to use his wish as an opportunity to experience the world in a way his medical condition had previously made impossible. Gabriel’s number one wish is to have an all-terrain wheelchair that is capable of operating on dirt, sand and beaches. In his current wheelchair, Gabriel has limited independence and is frequently unable to participate in activities with his family. Whenever they take a trip to the beach, Gabriel must sit back on the pavement while the rest of his family enjoys playing in the sand. For Gabriel, an all-terrain motorized wheelchair would provide an incredible improvement on his quality of life. “It would be more than just one special day,” said Gabriel. “Having this wish could make many special days!”
