Collin's Bucket List

Out of nowhere our sweet 16 year old Collin ended up in the hospital with the flu, which turned into Pneumonia and then Acute Respiratory Distress sydnrome and Sepsis.  He received a Tracheotomy to help his lungs and was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.   He spent over six weeks in the pediatric ICU at Maria Fareri Children's Hospital fighting for his life. 

The amazing team of doctors were able to save Collin and he is currently at a rehab facility for at least a couple of months until he is healthy enough to return home.  As a result of the illness his vocal cords were damaged.  He currently cannot eat or drink and he is down to 108 pounds.  

Collin has been making a bucket list of things to look forward to when he is well enough.  Number 1 is a trip to Orlando, Walt Disney World and Universal Studios; after that a baseball game and some Broadway shows.  We would love to be able to provide him with as many items as possible, but due to medical expenses we are limited.  

Having things to look forward to is what is keeping him motivated!  If you would like to assist with even a small donation we would be extremely grateful!
