Welcome to #TogetherWeWill
On Tuesday, April 17, 2018 I was diagnosed with acute leukemia at 27 years old. With a strength, peace, and confidence that only God and a loving support system can provide, I’m pledging to focus my energy on helping others in need while I intensely pursue my own recovery.
Shortly after my diagnosis, My younger sister coined the phrase #TogetherWeWill to be the motto of my journey and I couldn’t be more proud to represent these words. What does it mean? First and foremost, it represents that this battle isn’t being fought alone. It represents a sense of hope that is infectious. And most of all, it represents that anything is possible when people join forces to achieve something spectacular.
Please join me in supporting a cause that is very dear to my heart, Give Kids the World. We, in unity, have the potential to bring joy and happiness to this world. And with your help, #TogetherWeWill.
About Give Kids the World:
Give Kids The World Village is an 84-acre, nonprofit resort in Central Florida that provides weeklong, cost-free vacations to children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. The Village and its community partners provide children and their families accommodations in fully-furnished villas, transportation, tickets to theme parks, meals, daily entertainment and much more.
Each year 27,000 children in the United States are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. Half of all children eligible for a wish through a partnering wish-granting organization choose to visit Central Florida and its collection of theme parks and other attractions.
Our goal, quite simply, is to provide everything these deserving families need to make their trip the vacation of a lifetime. Since 1986, more than 160,000 children and families have had their dreams fulfilled in a whimsical Village unlike any other place on earth.
