Ian is 7 years old and currently fighting Leukemia. He is in remission and reviving chemo once a month. We received a wish from Ian's loving mother Sonia who, due to Ian's condition and treatment, is a stay at home mom. Sonia explained that as she doesn't have family in the country, she gets little help or support with Ian. The family is doing the best they can given their circumstance. They desperately needed a new & upgraded stroller for Ian. We granted that wish for Ian yesterday so he can be transported in comfort
Benny & Sofie Benyamin of Tamarac, Florida tried to have a baby for years. Finally, they were blessed with their pride and joy - Shiraz. Sadly, the couple would only have 6 years with their daughter.
On March 26,2017 both Benny & Sofie were killed in a car accident leaving Shiraz orphaned. Shiraz's parents were the center of her universe. Now, she left to live out her young life without her mommy and daddy.
We received a wish from Alexandrea advising us that in addition to all Shiraz is dealing with this week after burying both her parents, her 7th birthday is on Thursday. Alex asked us to grant a wish for this worthy little girl. Alex met with Shiraz today and Shiraz said that the one birthday gift that would make her smile is an IPad. The 2nd was virtual reality glasses.
We granted this wish for Shiraz in the hope that it might be a welcome distraction from all the sadness she is experiencing. Quite simply, this is the hardest wish we have ever had to grant.
Please keep Shiraz in your prayers.
You never know where we will show up to grant a wish. Today we appeared at Mike Wilson's workplace to grant a wish submitted for his children/family by his coworker - Dawn. Here's the wish we received and what we did for the Wilson's.
Dear Bianca's Kids,
My name is Dawn and I am a coworker of Mike & Kim Wilson. On March 26, 2017, Mike came home to his house engulfed in flames. Thankfully no one was home at the time but Mike and his family lost everything. Mike and his wife Kim and their 2 children Gwen (13) and Dane (8) are the most wonderful people anyone can have as friends, they would give you the shirt off their backs and not ask for anything in return. If there is any way you could help replace a few items for the family. This family is so worthy of a wish from Bianca's Kids.
We granted this wish today with following for the Wilson Family:
- Two 32gb amazon fire tablets to replace the kids' tables;
- $250 amazon gift card for school clothes
- A photo session from giggle garden for a family portrait because all the family photos were destroyed;
- A framed portrait from BK for the family's new home
