GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (April 2019): Hope loves music and theatre and always wanted to see a Broadway show. She enjoys participating in her school choir and adores everything Disney. She also loves to collect Funko Pop figurines. Hope suffers from Spina Bifida, a birth defect that occurs when the spine and spinal cord don’t form properly. Hope primarily uses a wheelchair to get around and has undergone over 24 different surgeries.
Kids Wish Network, a children’s charity that grants wishes for kids with life-threatening illnesses helped make Hopes dream come true by sending her a Ticketmaster gift card to experience any theatrical performance of her choice. Kids Wish Network also sent her a generous Walmart gift card for her to pick out her favorite things including a bunch of new Funko Pop figurines to add to her collection.
“We’re glad that Hope can experience a Broadway-style production and enjoy using her gift card on whatever her heart desires,” said Kids Wish Network Executive Director Tam Lai.
Kids Wish Network is a national charitable organization dedicated to infusing hope, creating happy memories, and improving the quality of life for children with life-threatening conditions and struggling with life-altering situations.
