WISH GRANTED FOR PRECIOUS LITTLE BOY WHO WANTS A TEDDY BEAR THAT LOOKS JUST LIKE HIM - MEET FLETCHER.
We received a wish for 2-year-old Fletcher from his mom which stated in part:
Dear Bianca's Kids, due to failure to thrive & pancreatic deficiency, Fletcher must wear his gtube. We would like to be able to take Fletcher to the Build-a-Bear in Roanoke (1 hr away from us) and have a special day for him to build a bear with a gtube button added to his bear so he would have a stuffed animal just like him. He often touches his button and knows it is different when looking at others. We would like him to be able to have something special to cuddle that looks just like him.
Thanks to our friends at the Helping Humanity Fund who sponsored this wish, we gifted Fletcher and his family $100 for Fletcher to go to Build-A-Bear and choose whatever accessories he wants for his bear including a gtube; $50 for gas for the family to get to/from the store and an additional $100 for Fletcher and his family to go to dinner after a Build-A-Bear. Why not make a day out of it?
Our heartfelt thanks to The Helping Humanity Fund for helping us make Fletcher's wish come true. See this amazing organizations blog here:
We received a wish from Victoria for her gorgeous 6 yr old daughter Brylee. Victoria explained that Brylee has B-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. She added that this sweet angel loves to sing and her dream is to be an singer/entertainer. Brylee's wish was to attend a Kelsea Ballerini concert.
We granted this wish for Brylee with tickets to a Kelsea Ballerina concert, a gift card to cover gas for the trip to/from the concert venue and a gift card for an awesome dinner the night of the concert.
Have a great time Brylee!!!!
Here's the wish we received:
Hi, I am a single grandmother raising my 12 year old grandson. Jason has been through so much in his short life. His mother has been in and out of hospitals and has been unable to properly care for Jason. As a result of some past trauma, Jason now suffers with PTSD and emotional problems. He attends a special school for children with emotional and behavioral health issues.
He is the most loving boy and is very attached to me. Due to attachment issues he tells me constantly that I'm the best grandma ever and how much he loves me. (Sometimes he says this up to 10 times a day)
Just two weeks ago, Jason was discharged from a child's hospital due to his PTSD symptoms. He spent 10 days there as they figured out medication to help him. He suffers with severe depression as well. He hasn't seen his mom in over five years due to her health problems.
One of the things that Jason loves to do is play video games and watch YouTube to learn to create video games. He would love to have a tablet he can use on his long bus rides to and from his school. He spends 45 minutes to an hour to and from school each day.
We are so sorry for all that Jason has had to endure in his short life. Here at Bianca's Kids, we love grandparents who step up to care for their grandchildren. We know it can't be easy so anything we can do to help is a pleasure for us. We are granting your wish for a tablet for Jason and hope it will keep him occupied and entertained during his long bus trips. :)

Aubrie has ectodermal dysplasia and her case is very rare. Her skin on her body are very sensitive to light and is very frail. She was born with 80 percent of her first layer of skin gone. It grew but is now so frail a normal cut that would heal for us takes her 3xs as long to heal. She gets very sick easily and the same thing it stays with her for a while. She was born with a cleft lip and pallet and has had numerous surgeries to fix. She is photo phobic and sensitive towards light and the sun so she has to constantly wear sunglasses and caps to keep her eyes & head safe cause she cannot grow hair on her head. She has many drs and many appointments for her care because she has numerous things going on with her with her joints muscles and everything. She has fused eyelids because she is partial blind and has to have drops in her eyes constantly. She is fully deaf and has a bone conductor to help her and she is very fluent in sign language . She is tube fed. Her self esteem is better now with people because some people dont understand her and can be afraid or hurtful towards her. But if u know Aubrie, she is a happy - sweet person. If anyone should be granted a wish it should be sweet Aubrie.
My wish would be for a gift card for Aubrie to go shopping. She loves to shop!
Today we granted a big for sweet Aubrie with a surprise visit to her home, a $1,000.00 gift card to go on a shopping spree today and a plush limo to go/from the mall!
This one took us to the Bronx, NY at FDNY EMT Station 26 to presented Jose, the son of Yadira Arroyo (former FDNY EMT killed in the line of duty) with a wish for him and his 4 brothers to enjoy. An all-inclusive trip to Disney World!!!!
In March, 2017 Yadira Arroyo, a 14-year NY EMT was on duty when a madman overtook her ambulance and ran her over, killing her instantly. Yadira was just 44 years old and left 5 beautiful sons behind. As grieving children are part of our mission, we knew that we wanted to make this wish special for the Arroyo children.
Jose, surrounded by his family and his mother's coworkers, and union brothers, could not have been happier. He's never been to Disney and was so excited and appreciative for the opportunity to spend some fun time with his little brothers. It was obvious that this handsome, well-spoken and gentle young man was the product of an amazing mother. Yadira's 5 boys will enjoy a much needed vacation in the magic kingdom to reconnect as a family and forget their circumstances for a little while. It was am emotional day for all us and a perfect wish for the children of a fallen hero.
We surprised our former wish recipient AJ with a "no more chemo" party at Chick-fil-A in Washington Township, New Jersey. He was surrounded by family and friends as we all celebrated this major milestone for a sweet little boy. As AJ was going through chemotherapy on the day we granted his initial wish last year, he was so sick he could barely enjoy the day. Accordingly, we felt that another surprise was in order for our little warrior. In addition to his party at Chick-Fil-A, we surprised AJ with tickets to the WWE Battleground event in Philadelphia in July, 2007. As you can see on his face, this cancer survivor was thrilled beyond words!
We ❤️ you!!!!!
We received a wish from a teacher in New York by the name of Anne. Anne explained that 18-year-old David has Cri du Chat Syndrome. She added that David recently attended his prom and went crazy over all the beautiful dress shoes everyone was wearing as they were much different from the regular shoes students normally wear to school.
Given David's new show fetish, Anne thought Bianca's Kids could brighten David's day with some beautiful dress shoes of his own. So for David we have a snazzy pair of brown dress shoes, a pair of black dress shoes and a new pair of bright blue (his favorite color) sneakers.
Enjoy your new kicks David. Nothing like a sharp dressed man!
We received a wish from a local caseworker from the Division of Youth and Family Services. She stated the following:
Jason is one of seven children who was in foster care for four years. Jason was returned home to his mother in December, 2016. He is in desperate need of a laptop because his mom cannot afford one for him. Jason went from foster care to moving away from his friends and school. The family moved to another town in NJ where a computer or laptop is mandatory. The school has homework that can only be done at home with a computer. Jason wants to play baseball but as he has to stay after school to use the school's computers to do his homework, he misses out on that opportunity. Any help would be appreciated.
Dear Lorene, we dont know how any child can get through school today without a laptop. Jason deserves every resource and opportunity every other child has. Accordingly,your wish is granted! One shiny new laptop for Jason coming right up! Now, he can play baseball and do his homework from home.
(for confidentiality purposes, names have been changed. Photo courtesy of Fotolia does not depict the actual child.)
WISH GRANTED FOR LITTLE GIRL WITH MEDICAL CONDITIONS THAT CAUSE HER ANXIETY & LOW SELF ESTEEM. MEET MIRACLE
Here's the wish we received from a special mom.
Dear Bianca's Kids:
Miracle is asthmatic and suffers from eczema and food allergies. She has anxiety and low self esteem because of her skin(rash) condition due to the eczema. I am a single mother who finds it financially hard at times to buy her anything.
Miracle's wish, if granted, would be a gift card to Wal-Mart so that she can pick herself out a toy and a outfit to lift her spirits a little bit. This will put a big smile on her face. I wish I could do this for her right now but I cant. Thank you for the consideration. Have a bless day
Thank you for your wish. We hear this a lot, medical conditions that cause children to have self-esteem and anxiety issues at no fault of their own. Given what miracle goes through, we felt a little shopping spree was appropriate here. Accordingly we are sending Miracle a Walmart gift card to buy herself something special.
