"Brooklyn's Only Wish!" -All I Want Momma-Is to See Brooklyn NY!
Diagnosed with a Terminal Illness 'Brooklyn" wants to Visit for the first time the City She is Named After! Special Mom Jennifer Wright's Quest to Make It Happen on "Candace Unscripted!"
I happen to be at a Starbucks getting my regular coffee fix, when I met Jennifer, as we were talking she told me about how she came to believed in miracles when she gave birth to her daughter Brooklyn-Here's what she said-
"My daughter Brooklyn, is 6 years old and was born with a rare Genetic Adrenal Disorder which is life threatening and causes her to have a compromised immune system. Simply put, her Pituitary and Adrenal Glands do not function. This causes her to often be sick and in the hospital. There is NO Cure for her condition but she takes medication and shots to keep her alive and healthy. Even after having many scary episodes which causes her life threatening side affects and a few times causing Full Cardiac Arrest, shes a very happy, extremely bright, determined little girl who doesn't have a real understanding of how serious her condition is. Thankfully she hasn't had any major episodes in the past two years and even on the days she's not well enough to go to school she is still determined to do her school work at home.
I've started this campaign to make her ONE very simple dream come true while she is still well enough to travel. The one and only thing she's wanted to do in her life is to visit the city of Brooklyn and walk across The Brooklyn Bridge. In her innocent mind she truly thinks the city is named after HER and when I ask if she can have ANY wish in the world her answer is always the same... "Momma I want to go see My city and walk across My bridge." As a single mother of three beautiful children I decided to dedicate my life to them, their education and Brooklyn's health. It was an extreme financial sacrifice to make taking over Brooklyn's care 100% of the time as her Medical Case Manager and her nurse around the clock. All I want for my Daughter is to make this fairly simple dream come true for her. I was expecting a grand dream that most kids would wish for but hers is so simple in my eyes. Any help to get my daughter and I to Brooklyn so I can fulfill this one wish she's had would be beyond the most amazing gift for a little girl who has had a very hard start to her estimated short life expectancy. I would LOVE to surprise her with this trip to see her city."
As a Host of a Radio Show and with tears in my eyes "All I could say is that the world is big, and all this little girl wants is to see "Brooklyn New York" lets rally around "Brooklyn" and Make her Dream Come True!
So join us on "Candace UnScripted”™ for a heartwarming show you won't want to miss, with special Mom - Jennifer Wright! Also a special fund has been created as well for Brooklyn.
