BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (May 2019): Laura likes to shop and always wanted to go on a shopping spree to buy all the things she loves. She suffers from Angelman syndrome, a genetic disorder that causes severe seizures and malformations in the body. She’s had multiple surgeries and utilizes a wheelchair to help her get around.
Kids Wish Network, a children’s charity that grants wishes for kids with life-threatening illnesses, made her dream come true, purchasing gift cards for Laura’s favorite stores as well as a Happy Teen Gift Card from Happy Cards which she can redeem at popular retail and restaurant locations. She can’t wait to use her gift cards on lots of new clothes and dining experiences.
“Laura will have so much fun picking out all her favorite things that bring her joy,” said Kids Wish Network Executive Director Tam Lai.
