Zendaya is a girl who knows what she loves, and that’s toys. She even watches her favorite YouTubers review the newest ones to hit the stores, and there’s so many she dreamed of having. Kids Wish Network, a children’s charity that grants wishes for kids with life-threatening illnesses, purchased Zendaya a generous Walmart gift card so she could go on a toy shopping spree… she’ll surely need more than one cart!
She has pulmonary atresia, a birth defect of the pulmonary valve. Zendaya has already undergone four surgeries on her heart, and has additional conditions. She’s also had lung surgery, is fed through a G-tube and requires 24-hour at home nursing care. Zendaya has been through so many medical procedures, and her treatments will continue with physical and occupational therapies.
“Toys are the quickest way to bring a smile to a child’s face, and Zendaya’s exciting shopping spree will keep her smiles coming,” said Kids Wish Network Executive Director Tam Lai.
