Our 2016 wish granting day with the Philadelphia Eagles was a huge success!!! On August 13, 2016, Bianca's Kids took a number of struggling children to meet their NFL idols - the Philadelphia Eagles. Each child's story is different, but their wishes were the same. Take a look at these faces. Every child in their glory. Oh, what a day!!!
Kejohn is one of the most special teens we've ever met. In addition to his lifelong struggle with MD, this young man has also suffered the loss of his beloved mother. While he faces so much adversity in his life, this honor roll student is always happy and that is why to know him is to love him. To call Kejohn an inspiration would be an understatement! Kejohn really wanted to meet Eagles' 1st round draft pick Carson Wentz and he did! It doesn't get better than that!
Domenic (Little Dom") is a bright, energetic & adorable little boy. A couple of years ago, this perfectly healthy child began having seizures and was diagnosed with epilepsy. While his seizures take a lot out of him, this warrior doesn't let his condition get him down. Little Dom had a blast at Eagles Camp.
Samantha is a special young girl who suffers from Type I diabetes. She is also grieving the loss of her mother. Samantha loves sports and the Eagles! She loved every minute of her day with the Eagles especially meeting Swoop!
At three-years-old, Jaylyn was the biggest Eagles fan there. One would never know this adorable little girl has a rare and life-threatening disease. She stole every player's heart including Jon Dorenbos who graciously performed some of magic tricks for her. What a love bug!
AJ is 9-years-old and battling a brain tumor. This superhero is such a comedian and had us laughing all day! While his condition is serious, this sweet boy remains all smiles. No one had more fun than AJ.
Anthony is a young man with a big burden. At a time when he should be enjoying his childhood free from stress, this young man struggles with worry for his mom. You see, Anthony's mother is in a fight against brain cancer. We felt Anthony deserved a day of fun that might help him forget his worries and fears for even a few hours. While Anthony loved meeting the Eagles players, it appears he had a much better time meeting the Eagles' cheerleaders. Smiles for days!
Our heartfelt thanks goes out to the Philadelphia Eagles Organization for hosting us once again and making a few kids feel so special. It was day none of us will soon forget.
