“This was the best lunch of my life
Morgan was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2008 and spent much of her adolescence trying to stabilize her blood sugar levels. In 2012, she was hospitalized with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), a life-threatening complication of her diabetes that can result in death without treatment. Morgan was then classified as a “brittle diabetic”, meaning her type 1 diabetes was extremely hard to control.
In 2013, Morgan received a diabetic alert dog to help regulate her levels but she still has difficulty keeping herself healthy. Because physical activity can be hard on her diabetes, Morgan has become quite the talented writer, penning paranormal and science fiction stories in her spare time. She also devours anything written by Heather Brewer, author of The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod.
When Kids Wish Network found out Heather Brewer would be at a writing conference where Morgan could hone her skills, we couldn’t wait to make her dream come true. KWN coordinated for Morgan to attend part of the conference in Wisconsin, tour some of the state’s great attractions, and have a VIP lunch with Ms. Brewer herself.
“Thanks for Kids Wish Network, I can say with confidence that this was the best lunch of my life,” said Morgan.
While on her trip, Morgan was given celebrity-style treatment in the Wisconsin Dells as she enjoyed a few of the area’s local sponsors: http://www.wiscnews.com/news/local/article_2745c2fa-1b88-50de-8155-46ff463e0086.html. Morgan also attended a “Zombie Prom” and enjoyed luxury accommodations and dinners.
“Thank you for making such great memories for her,” adds her mom.
Kids Wish Network would like to thank all the generous Guardian Angel sponsors that helped make Morgan’s ultimate dream come true!
