When I was 9 years old, I was diagnosed with an Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM). From there, I would receive proton radiation every four years in hope that some day it would be go away. I was granted my wish to go on a Disney Cruise in 2010. My family and I were on the ship for 7 days. We visited Cozumel, Grand Cayman, Key West, and Disney's private island, Castaway keys. We also had private events with the captain of the ship and Alice from Alice in Wonderland. We would wake up every morning with a note slid under our door from the wish coordinator on board with the schedule of events for the day. I've never had a more wonderful experience in my life! In the fall of 2010, my family and I participated in our very first Walk for Wishes. We walked 8 miles along the waterfront in Burlington. It was a great event! We've been to every walk since. Then, in 2012, I had a hemmorrhagic stroke. I was hospitalized from September until October. I returned full time to school in February. I started to receive botox injections in my left arm every 12 weeks to help with random muscle movement. To present day, I still receive proton radiation and I have MRIs every 12 months. I'm currently attending my first semester in college and everything is going great!
