“Sharon is trying to recover the lost time of her childhood”
Born premature, Wish Kid Sharon has dealt with multiple medical issues. She spent her first few years in and out of the hospital making frequent trips due to constant ear infections, breathing troubles and hernia operations. After Sharon and her family moved to the United States, doctors conducted a full genetic study. All of Sharon’s symptoms were explained by her diagnosis; Sharon suffered from DiGeorge syndrome, a genetic disorder that causes poor development in several body systems.
The incurable disease is managed by controlling its symptoms. Doctors also discovered that Sharon had a hole in her heart and performed surgery to correct it. She soon had more surgeries to help alleviate her problems; so far, she’s suffered through six different procedures.
Despite all she’s been through, Sharon is a sweet and happy young lady that loves everything Disney-related. Kids Wish Network was more than happy to grant her only wish and send her on a once-in-a-lifetime experience to Disney World.
Sharon and her family stayed at luxury accommodations, explored all the parks, and dined at fun restaurants. The experience was one that Sharon is unlikely to ever forget.
KWN would like to thank all the sponsors that helped make her dream come true!
