At the age of one, Gabby was diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome, which causes her kidneys to leak large amounts of protein from the body daily. This condition causes many complications, including the weakening of her immune system. She is on a strict daily medication regimen and she must limit her exposure to germs in order to avoid more complications.
Gabby’s wish was to visit Disneyland and boy did she have a wonderful time! She got to meet Tinker Bell and her friends in Pixie Hollow and she even rode Splash Mountain three times! When she met Mickey Mouse, Gabby just had to tell him that she had been waiting her whole life to see him. All of her dreams came true with this one trip.
