Erica struggles with a seizure condition that’s been difficult to control. Even after trying various medications, she still has regular episodes. It’s been very stressful not knowing when a seizure will strike, and has caused her several injuries landing her in the hospital and trips to the ER. One of her biggest comforts is her love of music. It elevates her mood, and she especially relates to her favorite K-pop band BTS (Bangtan Boys). Erica dreamed about seeing them in concert, but their tour was cancelled amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Kids Wish Network, a children’s charity that grants wishes for kids with life-threatening illnesses, wanted to keep her as upbeat as her favorite music, and purchased Erica a generous Ticketmaster gift card. It will give her something exciting to look forward to and the ability to have amazing seats when they start touring again.
“Erica’s wish will keep her having faith in her dreams, and give her the opportunity to see her favorite band up close,” said Kids Wish Network Executive Director Tam Lai.
