Here's the wish we received via our website:
Dear Bianca's Kids,
Hi my son Major was diagnosed with pulmonary atresia intact ventricular septum when I was pregnant with him. He will be eight months in a few days and it has been rough, tough, scary and extremely emotionally but because he is so strong. We have truly be blessed that he is doing so well after having open heart surgery on May 10, 2017. we had a set back after his 6 week check up and he was hospitalized for a week due to fluids building up around his heart but through it all he is a happy, loving , silly baby boy who has three big brothers and one big sister. My husband and I have been struggling financially. So I'm writing to you something I have never done in my life is to be able to get Major some baby items that I haven't been able to get him. He needs a high chair, swing, walker, playpen and educational toys.
Thank you so much for reading
Dear Saddiqque, Major Cuteness is getting every single thing he needs from Bianca's Kids. We have ordered a high chair, playpen, walker, swing and educational toys for Major. Everything will be delivered to you by or before September 28th.
Here is the wish we recieved via our website:
Dear Bianca's Kids,
Our daughter has Prader-Willi Syndrome which is a life-threatening eating disorder. Due to her increased weight gain, because her hypothamus does not tell her to stop eating like normal people, she is almost 50pds at age 3. She has low muscle tone, cognitive delays and an insatiable appetite. It gets difficult carrying/holding her for a long period of time. We are in need of a stroller with a higher weight limit and the only ones are strollers such as the Bob brand which are out of our price range. We can't afford them, we already struggle with her medical bills and were recently denied medicaid benefits for her. Looking for assistance/help to buy one. I've even contacted the Bob company to ask about sales/discounts etc., but they have never responded back to me. Having a new stroller would help us greatly since she requires many medical appointments and just to be able to go for a walk/run with her and be able to transport her around when she gets fatigued. Even if you could lead us in the right direction for getting some help would be greatly appreciated!
Tori, you wish is granted! No more searching, no more begging. A brand new BOB stroller will be delivered to your door for Addyson tomorrow. :
We have already donated $500 to our partners at the The Unforgotten Haven for their trip to Houston/hurricane relief. Unfortunely, its not enough. The Haven's outreach all over the country is AMAZING and for this reason, they are our ONLY nonprofit partners. Every donation given to them will be used to PERSONALLY DELIVER everything collected to those suffering in Houston. While the Haven has and is collecting a ton of material goods for TX, monetary donations are needed at this time. Truck rentals, gas, tolls, food for volunteers, hotel rooms etc. do not come free. In order to get all that has been donated to men, women and children in TX, we ask that you please help us and the Haven by donating $5, $10, $100.

Here's the wish we received from Sami's mommy:
Dear Bianca's Kids,
My wish is for our daughter Sami to receive a weighted blanket and vest. Over the last few months she has shown us how pressure and "squeezes" really comfort and calm her. At least once a week she wakes in the middle of the night and is just up for an hour or 2. I'm really hoping this would help her. Her days after those nights are so hard and thrown off. I'm trying to explore all options to help her sleep through the night and get the rest she needs to face her busy days. Thank you very much for considering her.
Thank you for your wish! One weighted blanket and weighted vest coming right up! We know these items will help Sami rest easier. Keep us updated.
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:

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.
