YOUNG GIRL BATTLING A NUMBER OF MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES IS GIVEN THE GIFT OF MUSIC. OUR NEXT CHRISTMAS WISH IS GRANTED FOR SARAH
Here’s the wish we received via our website:
Dear Bianca’s Kids,
My daughter Sarah is 11 years old and diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome, Bipolar Disorder, Anxiety and OCD. She is a very smart and kind girl but suffers a great deal because of her mental health conditions. She has struggled much of her young life. What makes things even more difficult for her is that the man she loved as Daddy died. And her mom (me) has systemic Lupus and is often quite ill. She has very severe episodes of depression and very severe OCD and anxiety. This impacts everyday of her life and many days (every waking minute).
Sarah is often not happy no matter how much love she is shown. She is just that ill. But she has told me she wants to play the clarinet. Due to my circumstances, I can’t purchase her one.
I try to be an advocate for children with mental health conditions because there just is not enough awareness and help out there. I do what I can to help others but sometimes we need a little help too. If you make this wish come true for my daughter, I could never put to words the gratitude I will have.
Thank you so much!
Dear Kristian, as we believe a clarinet would be so therapeutic for Sarah, we are thrilled to grant your wish. One clarinet and one book on how to learn to play coming right up!
