Team Super Peanut
Hello! We are participating in the "Walk for Wishes: North Bay,” a 5K walk/ fun run in Petaluma. In this fundraiser, 100% of the proceeds go to the Make-A-Wish foundation to help children who are battling life-threatening illnesses be able to experience a once in a lifetime opportunity to have their heart's desire come true. It is because of Make-A-Wish that Penelope was able to take a once in a lifetime trip to Orlando. But first, let me back up a little..
Our Super Peanut was diagnosed with Pleuropulmonary Blastoma Type 1 (PPB) in July of 2015. PPB is a very rare type of cancer that normally affects children under seven years of age. Through this disease she has had to have two of her lobes of her lungs removed, and is on yearly scans to check for the growth of additional tumors.
From July 24-30, 2016 Make-A-Wish sent us on a trip to Orlando. When we landed (the girls’ first ever flight!) we are ushered to Give Kids The World. This seventy-acre resort's sole purpose is to make sure kids have the most mind-blowingly amazing experience ever. As if staying at the resort wasn't enough, we were able to go to Disney World, Sea World, as well as Universal Studios to fulfill Peanut's wish of meeting the Minions. Just to see the joy and unhindered excitement on the face of a child who has been through so much in her short life, gave us as a family a renewed energy and drive to persevere.
