Like most teens, Deja loves shopping for all the latest trends. Kids Wish Network, a children’s charity that grants wishes for kids with life-threatening illnesses, purchased Deja a generous variety of Happy brand gift cards, giving her happy times shopping for all her favorite things, as well as options for dining and movies. Kids Wish Network also purchased her an Express gift card Deja could use to pick out her perfect outfit.
Deja struggles with pain, fatigue and high fevers from sickle cell disease, an inherited condition where there aren’t enough healthy red blood cells to carry oxygen throughout the body. She’s been hospitalized several times, and it’s been a crushing blow no longer being able to play basketball
“Deja will now be able to shop for all the things she’s been hoping for,” said Kids Wish Network Executive Director Tam Lai.
