Nyah didn’t smile. She was ashamed of her teeth. More than anything she wanted braces but mom couldn’t afford them and insurance didn’t cover braces.
Thanks to our sponsor and the greatest Orthodontist in the country Dr. Dan Bills of Innovative Orthodontics, we were able to make Nyah’s wish come true. She is getting her braces and a smile she can be proud of. Look how happy she was at her first visit with Dr. Dan.
Thank you Dr. Dan! We love and appreciate you.
HER INSURANCE COMPANY REFUSED TO PAY FOR THE SCRIPTS SHE NEEDED SO WE DID! WISH GRANTED FOR ALIZABETH.
Here’s the wish we received:
Lizzy has Type I Diabetes. She wishes for a glucose monitor. Specifically a Freestyle Libra monitor and sensors (the stickers that go on her arm). She wishes for this so she no longer has to get her finger pricked 5-6 times a day anymore to test her glucose. The Monitor and sensors are NOT covered by insurance. We (her parents) are prepared to spend the $75.00 monthly to get her sensors after the first month. We just need help getting her monitor and sensors to get her started. We have 5 children and extra things are sometimes hard to budget in our finances. The monitor and sensors are a script and at our local pharmacy-Walgreens. She would love to have this equipment, it would make her life a whole lot easier. Thank you for your consideration.
Tonight, we called that Walgreens, paid for the monitor and sensors and told Lisa to go pick up Alizabeth’s scripts.
We received a wish from Chase’s mom. She explained that this beautiful 9 year old boy has hydrocephalus, developmental delays, hypotonia, wears braces on ankles,
and is in the process of being diagnosis from genetics doctors at Children’s Hosp of Philadelphia. Chase’s mom told us that with all this angel has to deal with, he has been bullied too.
Chase’s mommy told us that he LOVES the Phila Eagles and would be over the moon if he could ever meet them. We believe he deserves a one on one meeting with the super bowl champs so, this little guy is coming with us to Eagles training camp in the summer to have his dream become a reality. It’s a long wait but Chase’s mom assures us he’s willing to wait. Truth is, our day at training camp is worth every second of the wait!
So happy for you Chase!
WISH GRANTED FOR LITTLE BOY WITH CEREBRAL PALSY. HIS WISH IS SOMETHING THE AVERAGE CHILD TAKES FOR GRANTED. MEET CHARLES.
Dear Bianca’s Kids,
My son is not fully capable of really asking for a wish, he doesn’t talk a lot but is in need of things that would make him more comfortable. He has cerebral palsy, epilepsy, autism, asthma and so many other conditions, he is incontinent and we struggle to find diapers for him, which is somewhat financial related but mostly just that his body type is so different that the smallest adult diapers are too large but the pull ups he is using do not hold enough since he’s tube fed. It would be amazing to find a way to cloth diaper him to decrease the number of times he’s changed throughout the day because his pull ups leak every single time, keeping him dry (he doesn’t mentally register being embarrassed yet but he hates changing his clothes, keeping him on task at school and getting more done in therapy is just a fantastic wish for us. The company who sells cloth diapers in hi s size charges about $20 per diaper and he needs at least 8 to get through the day.
This wish for such a basic need is an honor to grant for you. We are sending you a check for $500 to buy as many cloth diapers as Charles needs.
Sometimes the wishes are small to us but HUGE to the person in need. We received a wish for an autistic child who need a backpack and basically everything else of the upcoming school year. Understandably, back to school is expensive for anyone. Today, we granted that wish for a family who needed it. A check for their child's entire back to school wish list.
Across my facebook newsfeed came this very picture of a beautiful cheerleader. Pompoms in hand and full of adorableness, her name was Andrea. My heart burst with joy when I saw her. Reading the post that accompanied the photo which was written by Andrea's proud mommy, it became clear that people on social media had hurtful things to say about Andrea's. My heart broke for this gorgeous little angel and her proud mom.
We reached out to Connie (Andrea's mom) and told her we wanted to grant a wish for Andrea. She told us Andrea would love some new clothes and we are going to provide her that. We are sending Andrea a gift card for $300 to go on a clothing shopping spree for herself. She deserves it.
Andrea, you couldn't be more beutiful. Enjoy your day shopping.
We received a wish for Aiden, an 11 year old boy from Williamstown, NJ who is battling Medulloblastoma, a form of brain cancer. Aiden relapsed in March of 2017. His medication is not working. (His parents do not want him or his brothers to know yet how bad it is, so please keep that in mind if/when talking to them or your own children). Time is precious for Aiden and he wants to spend it with his family.
Aiden’s wish is to go back to a vacation house the family once rented at the Long Beach Island. Bianca’s Kids teamed up with our partners at “Lead the Way” and raised enough money to pay for the house rental, meals for the whole family for the entire week and little extra spending cash. We wanted to be sure this vacation was the best ever for Aiden.
Thank you everyone who donated toward this wish. Special thanks to Scott Wyte for coordinating and facilitating Aiden’s wish. ️
Please keep Aiden & hhs family in your prayers.
A MILLION THANKS TO THE GREATEST SPORTS ORGANIZATION IN THE WORLD - THE SUPER BOWL CHAMPION PHILADELPHIA EAGLES!!!
This year we made several wishes come true for some awesome kids. Their struggles are all different but their wishes were all the same - to meet their sports idols, the Eagles.
Thanks the Eagles organization, we were able to do that in a big way in 2018. The Eagles rolled out the red carpet for our kids with a tented pavilion, all the assorted drinks and water ice the kids could eat, chicken fingers and crab fries from Chickie & Pete's and on and on. Plus, a meet and greet with ALL the super bowl champs. Our wish recipients enjoyed a day they wont soon forget.
This year's wish recipients consist of:
Anthony - 18-years -old and a professional tumbler who, after landing wrong on a tumble was left paraplegic. Anthony is now a public speaker who raises awareness for spinal cord injury and recovery.
Giovanni - 11-years-old. Giovanni is one of only 300 documented cases in the world with Schwartz Jample Syndrome. Giovanni is the adorable little fellow with the green and white hair in the photos. He was and is a true inspiration.
AJ - 7-years-old. AJ struggles from FOP which is commonly known as "Stone Man Syndrome." AJ had a complete ball! The smile never left his face.
Jevon - 14 years old and has type 1 diabetes. Jevon is a spokesperson for diabetes and helps school-aged children understand the dilemmas kids face who are afflicted with diabetes. This is an A-1 Eagles fan, so you can imaging how happy Jevon was when super bowl champ Corey Clement gave him his gloves!
Ben - 2-years-old and the sweetest foster baby you'll ever meet. Ben and his sister was recently adopted by his foster parents (seen in the photos with Ben) who are huge Eagles fans. We decided to make a huge wish come true for this awesome couple for taking two children out of the system and giving them a forever home. We brought them in from Virginia, put them up a beautiful hotel in Philly and provided them the opportunity to meet their favorite NFL team. Ben was hit with all the players.
Here is the wish we received via our website:
Dear Bianca’s Kids:
Nyah is an 11 year old girl who is sweet, caring, smart and funny. She currently resides with her single mother who works two jobs to try to make ends meet. Her mother has also moved in her father who is on dialysis. Nyah's grandfather also has both of his legs amputated requiring 24 hour care. Nyah along with her 12 year old brother assist. Nyah can be introverted and hides her feelings. At school, she has been teased. Nyah cut her hair to deal with her feelings.
I am requesting Bianca's Kids to help Nyah with braces as her mother's insurance does not cover. I'm pretty sure just mother would also be elated if you could assist.
In speaking to Nyah’s Godmother Ilisa we found out that Nyah’s smile embarrasses her. So, we called our friend Dr. Dan Bills at Innovative Orthodontics. Without hesitation, Dr. Bills agreed to gift Nyah s complete set of braces along with the pre and post care needed. Dr. Bills is a one in a million. We are blessed to know him and now, so is Nyah.
