Not all of our dreams result in travel! Gracie was referred to the Dream Factory because she has a lifelong bleeding disorder called Von Willebrand’s disease.
When our volunteers first talked with Gracie Smith’s mother, she thought Gracie’s dream would be to go to Disneyworld. However, when our volunteer met Gracie and asked her about what her dream might be, Gracie said she would love to have a new horse!!
Because Gracie has been riding for many years, her family had horses and the ability to care for a horse, lots of planning and care was taken to find just the right horse for Gracie. Now Gracie has a horse all her own and you can catch her at many local horse shows riding with a huge smile!
Our friend Brooklyn just returned from an amazing dream trip with her family. The Reeves stayed at the Give Kids the World resort in Orlando, Florida. They were able to visit the Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, universal studios and many other premier sites all while being treated as royalty!
Brooklyn has been diagnosed with Wolfram Syndrome, a very rare disease with lots of different symptoms and complications that can lead to deafness and loss of vision. It was very important for Brooklyn to be able to see “her” castle and all of the princess things that follow before her disease progresses any further.
