  • After undergoing brain surgery and being diagnosed with both a neurological disorder and an uncontrolled seizure disorder, all before the age of three, it’s safe to say that with kid Maggie had no ordinary childhood. Because of her constant seizures, she has had to spend hundreds of hours in physical therapy, causing her to miss out on many childhood activities. Maggie enjoys camping and exploring her home state of Michigan, but due to her seizures, it’s not safe for her to tent camp in rural areas overnight. After being introduced to Make-A-Wish Michigan, deciding on a wish was simple. She wished to have a camper, which would allow her to safely travel with her family. “Maggie’s wish meant freedom to travel as a family in a safe place for her to make many memories,” wish mom Kim said. They spent the first night camping in their front yard and have already enjoyed a few other trips with Maggie’s new camper. One of those trips Included traveling to spend time at the finish line of our first annual Trailblaze Challenge, cheering on hikers as they completed the 21-mile trek to help grant wishes. With purple pom-poms in hand, Maggie was smiling from ear to ear! “Make-A-Wish gave us a fresh start,” Kim said. “They provided something better than medicine: a lifetime of memories and joy.”
