***WISH GRANTED for terrified little boy suffering from PTSD after experiencing a tornado. Meet Logan****
Dear Bianca's Kids,
Logan will be 3 on December 14, 2016. He is little boy with a heart of gold who has been through a lot. We have moved twice and had a baby in a 1.5 year period. In addition to that, while visiting family in WV a tornado hit the house we were in. No warning. I grabbed Logan (and baby brother Dylan) and ran to the basement. I laid in front of the door & Logan laid on Dylan telling him everything was okay & not to be scared, while he was crying and scared to death himself. Afterwards, we started noticing loud noises and certain things triggered Logan to panic. After seeing a specialist, we were told that Logan suffers from the trauma of the tornado.
Kelsey (Logan's mom)
Logan really wanted a Moster Jam birthday party and was wishing for a couple Monster Jam items which his parents couldn't afford at this time. We granted Logan's wish with a check to mom to provide him the party of his dreams and few Monster Jam goodies to lift his spirits.
Myelle has been struggling with her health since birth. She battles daily fevers several times a day. These temperatures range from 101 - 103 degrees on the average day. When her fever goes up she will scream and cry for several hours until the fever goes down. Nothing I do can comfort her during these times of day. Every couple of weeks and months she hits a flare period where her fever goes to 105+ for 3-8 days. During this time her temperature never goes down. With her condition she battles constant abdominal pain, joint pain, headaches, gastrointestinal issues and more. Myelle has not yet been diagnosed but she has sent in genetic testing for Periodic Fever Syndrome. The doctors feel that this is the best diagnosis for her. She is in the process of getting orthotics to help with walking as she tends to trip and fall often. Despite her health she is such a bright little girl who is advanced for her age.
Myelle is turning 2 on December 6, 2016. Unfortunately due to the cost of her orthotics and Neocate products her family is unable to afford a birthday gift for her. Myelle spends a lot of time at Dr appointments each month and quite a bit of time travelling for her appointments. She also has recurrent hospitalizations. She would like to wish for a LeapFrog LeapPad™ Platinum Tablet to help pass the time.
We granted this wish for Myelle as keeping children occupied during medical treatments is vital.
Dear Bianca's Kids,
I am the democratic chair for the City of Bridgeton and the NAACP Political Action Chairman. Through my work, I met a wonderful woman named Emily who recently gave birth to a premature child. Emily is a hard working women but had to quit her job to take care of her newborn. She and her family have incurred over $350,000 in medical bills due to the baby's unexpected premature birth. Emily and her husband are completely consumed and overwhelmed with bills right now. They have another baby as well and I would love to see them receive some help for Christmas. She is a humble woman who comes from a traditional family and works so very hard. If Bianca's Kids would be kind enough to grant this Christmas wish, I would be eternally grateful.
Todd, thank you for your wish submission. I am happy to report that we are granting your wish by sending the family a check to help with Christmas and medical bills so that they may take a breather and enjoy the holiday free from additional bills.
*She spent 4,328 days in foster care, today she has been adopted by a loving family and is a Bianca's Kids Wish Recipient*
Dear Bianca's Kids,
Bella was in foster care for 12 years. She has some emotional issues which means she cannot be around animals, but she LOVES animals! Her wish is to have a "Little Live Pets Snuggles My Dream Puppy."
Thank you for adopting a most beautiful little girl. Bella's "Little Live Pets Snuggles My Dream Puppy" is on its way. We hope it will provide Bella some puppy comfort and joy. Love,
We received a wish from Nichole for her precious daughter Lilly,
Dear Bianca's Kids
Lilly is a year and a half old recently diagnosed with Neuroblastoma. She is being treated with chemo at CHOP. She is the strongest, bravest little girl I know and for that she is truly my hero! Lilly has kept a smile on her face this whole time. I am a single mom of 2 and out of work on unpaid leave to take care of Lilly while she is receiving chemo. This leaves me scared financially! Lilly loves Elmo and I love more than anything to see that smile on her face when he comes on tv. My wish is to send Lilly to Sesame Place in Langhorne Pa to meet her favorite monster. That would make her day and take her mind off cancer for a little bit. I would love to take my whole household but even if it is just Lilly we will truly appreciate your kindness.
Thank you in advance!
We granted Lilly's wish with 4 tickets for her and her family to go to Sesame Place.
We recently received a wish for little Natalie whose birthday is Dec 1st. Natalie has PFAPA and has been sick since she was 10 months old. From 10 months old until almost 4 she would have fevers as high as 106.7 every 5 weeks, along with severe mouth ulcers. Doctors removed her tonsils which helped us gain control of her fevers, bringing them to a manageable level, but her mouth ulcers continue. Every 5 weeks, she is a such severe pain that she cries nonstop. This lasts 5-6 days with anywhere from 15-20 ulcers each time.
With Natalie's birthday approaching, her mom sent in a wish for something she has been wishing for for a long time. An American Girl Doll. This is something mom could not afford but knew would bring immense joy to Natalie and comfort to her during times when she is sick.
For all these reasons, we granted this wish for Natalie and on Dec 1st, she will be opening a birthday gift from Bianca's Kids - her very own American Girl Doll. :)

We received a wish for Alieyah by a woman named Claire. Claire explained that she is a caregiver for Alieyah who is a 5 year old girl on the autism spectrum. Alieyah loves gymnastics so Claire enrolled in classes. Her wish was a small one. Anything relating to gymnastics that would bring a little joy to this sweet girl.
We granted this wish by sending Alieyah a new leotard for her new classes and a gymnast Barbie of course.
We received a wish from Shelle for a 14-year-girl named Molly. Molly suffers from WPW-SVT (Wolff Parkinson White Syndrome). She was diagnosed with this life-treating heart disorder 3 years ago. Only 1% of people have WPW in the passage way that Molly does. This condition makes Molly's heart suddenly race rapidly which results in scary episodes that could easily take her life at any moment.
Shelle explained in her wish that Molly's family lost everything due to various issues including Molly's medical bills. Thanks to many blessings, Molly's parents got back on their feet & were able to purchase a home. Shelle's wish was for Bianca's Kids to give Molly the bedroom of her dreams. That's exactly what we did today.
Molly is a sweet girl and an old soul who focuses her time volunteering for anyone who needs her. The two most important things to this special girl are her faith and her family.
We surprised Molly when with a new bedroom designed especially for her. She cried tears of joy when she saw her new space.
Molly, we ❤️ you. Enjoy you new bedroom!
My friend's 3 week old son Cameron was born with congenital glaucoma. His dad is one of the nicest people I ever met. Cameron's grandparents are coaches for our local little league. The family gives back to their community all the time. Cameron needs 2 immediate surgeries that costs 24K. His parents do not have health insurance to cover these surgeries. I am asking for help to contribute to Cameron's surgery fund in the amount of a $500 donation from Bianca's Kids.
Michael, we are so happy to grant this wish for you and Cameron. ❤️
