Bailey is a fun-loving 11-year-old who enjoys all sorts of sports, including baseball, wrestling, and skiing. His favorite baseball team is the NY Yankees and he’s a huge fan of players Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez. Bailey also enjoys school, and his favorite subjects are science, social studies, and health.
As an infant, Bailey suffered frequently from bouts of pneumonia. At 16 weeks old, he was tested for and diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. This condition clogs the lungs with mucus and can lead to life-threatening lung infections and also disrupts digestion. Bailey frequently suffers from lung infections and is treated with a percussion vest and daily medications. He was recently diagnosed with pseudomonas infection and is having a hard time fighting the bacteria even with monthly treatments.
For his wish, Bailey wants to meet his favorite NY Yankees player, Derek Jeter!
Madison is a positive 9-year-old who loves writing and swimming. She also enjoys playing games on her Playstation and playing with her cat, Casper.
Madison was born with the connective tissue disorder, Marfan syndrome. She was diagnosed with this condition when she was one and a half years old and it has caused a variety of problems for her, including a dilated aorta, restricted lung capacity, scoliosis, and a detached retina. Madison will need to have her aorta replaced with surgery and is on the waiting list. She also receives daily nebulizer treatments and must eat 13 meals daily because of her condition. Madison has endured 6 different eye surgeries in her 9 years and will have surgery on her spine later this year because of the progressive scoliosis for which she currently wears a back brace.
For her wish, Madison wants to visit the famous beaches in California.
