  • Averie's family (PMLD) is so thankful for their new van. She can now travel safely and comfortably to and from her doctor's appointments. It is a life changer for them!

The Wish Gift helps families who face extreme financial stress attributed to the costs associated with caring for a child with Krabbe or another Leukodystrophy. Requests are granted on a case-by-case basis and are limited to meeting needs that will enable an affected family to provide the best possible care for their child. Many times families come to the Foundation for assistance with a unique need – travel expenses associated with treatment, a wheelchair lift to enable a family to safely travel with their child or assistance in purchasing a vehicle to accommodate their child’s equipment needs.  These are only a few examples of ways Wish Gifts have helped our families focus on what matters most – caring for their child!
