National Sibling Day 2018

sib day
The bond between siblings is special but sharing a critical illness with a sibling can make that bond extra-special.

Brittany and Kaleb were both diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis, a lung disease that causes buildup making it difficult to breath. Their mom, Shannon, said “Brittany and Kaleb’s diagnosis was a shock to us. There are days that it is stressful, but we get through it day by day.” Both Brittany and Kaleb have been granted wishes and wish to stay involved with Make-A-Wish Oklahoma.

Brittany’s wish was to spend time with her family and do something they all could enjoy. She wished to go to Disney World. Looking back, Brittany said her fondest memory from the trip were “all the roller coasters and spending time with my family.”

Kaleb originally wished to attend Wrestlemania but had so much fun on his sister’s wish trip that when they returned he asked to change his wish, so he and his family could go back to Disney World! Kaleb and his family look forward to going back to Florida and getting to do everything they did not get to do on Brittany’s trip.

Their wish experience was so impactful that wish mom, Shannon, said “Our experience with Make-A-Wish Oklahoma has been amazing, very friendly people, best experience we have ever had. We would love to stay involved with Make-A-Wish.”

Kaleb’s wish is being granted soon so stay tuned for updates on Kaleb’s wish!
