Ride For Wishes - 2011 Ambassadors

Breanna is 14 years old.  She was born with spina bifida, hydrocephalus, and 1 kidney with limited function.  She is paralyzed from her waist down and uses an electric wheelchair for mobility.  She has been through more than 12 surgeries including a partial spinal fusion at the age of 4 which had to be redone with a complete spinal fusion just last year.  She had to undergo more surgery less than 6 weeks later for a staph infection in her back. 

Justin is 5 years old.  He was born with a congenital heart defect - hypoplastic left heart syndrome.  He has undergone a series of 3 open heart surgeries to redirect blood flow.  The first at 7 days old, the second at 3 months old, and the third just 2 months before his 3rd birthday.  He also suffers from a sick

sinus node.  The sinus node is the part of the heart that regulates the heart rhythm.  On November 16th, 2010, Justin had a pace maker implanted. 

Breanna and Justin like many of the same things, including being outside, animals - cats, dogs, and rabbits (all of which happen to be family pets), and country music.  However, Breanna likes to listen while Justin likes to sing along.

Breanna and Justin have not made their wishes yet.  During hospital stays and recoveries it is nice to have those wishes to look forward to.  They are both very excited about being involved with Make-A-Wish's Ride for Wishes.  Our family is very honored to be a part of such a wonderful organization and look forward to being able to give back
