“She now has toys I’ve only dreamed of being able to have for her.”
Everyone hopes for a healthy child. But sometimes life turns out very different. Nevaeh was born with part of her brain on the outside of her skull between her eyes. She also has hydrocephalus, a condition with a buildup of cerebrospinal fluid on the brain. It can cause headaches, impaired vision, cognitive delays, and a loss of coordination and bodily functions. Her health challenges are vast … Nevaeh also has Chiari malformation, spasticity, obstructive sleep apnea, an autoimmune condition, seizures, left hemiparesis, hypothyroidism, autism, central submucosal cleft palate, and optic nerve hypoplasia.
Nevaeh loves toys – they’re her happiness. In addition to the fun factor, she also needs specific toys for her safety and to give her positive sensory experiences. With so many needs and items on her wish list, these toys would be very expensive. Kids Wish Network granted Nevaeh’s wish by purchasing a generous gift card to Fun and Function, an online retailer that specializes in toys and accessories for children with special needs. Nevaeh now has a red plasma car, full support swing set, a sensory floor pad, textured bracelets, an acrylic mirror, and a wide variety of sensory toys to soothe and entertain her.
“She now has toys I’ve only dreamed of being able to have for her,” said her mom Kimberley. “We can’t thank you enough for granting her these amazing products. May God bless your organization.”
