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.
