Destiny's Bucket list wish.

Destiny is 11 years old and was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, a rare bone cancer, 3 years ago. Last December Destiny heard the 3 magical letters from her team of doctors, NED, (no evidence of disease), after two long years of battling this monster we call cancer. It was Destiny's Christmas Miracle and a blessing of no kind. She began post chemo treatment immediately and also dialysis due to kidney failure caused by the aggressive chemotherapy for 2 years. In June Destiny and her parents learned that the cancer was back and doctors felt that there were no more treatment options left for Destiny. Her little body could not sustain the aggressive chemotherapy. Destiny has developed chronic organ damage in not only her kidneys but her lungs and heart as well. The cancer has progressed in Destinys little body quicker then doctors expected it to. It has been the professional medical opinion of doctors that Destiny has 12 to 18 months here on earth with us, Destiny and her family feel that God has the final say and has a plan for Destiny, They pray daily for a miracle of healing.  Destiny is a fighter and has a heart of GOLD, her faith in God is truly inspiring. Despite her own battle with cancer she makes it a priority to bring smiles to other pediatric cancer patient's faces. 

This cancer has taken so much from this sweet child, including her childhood. All Destiny wants and deserves is a normal childhood, but CANCER is trying its best to take that away from her. Destiny despite all that she endures will always have a smile on her face. She frequently say's to others that smiling gives you strength so she encourages smiles often. 

Destiny has a bucket list which she calls a Fun List. Things she wants to do, like any normal child would. Her sickness has caused a huge financial burden that combined with the cancer, has put a hold on these things. I know, as a FIRM believer of GOD that anything is possible. What seems impossible, is possible with GOD. We are banning together now and reaching out for YOUR support. Destiny and her family face enormous uphill battles over the next several months and can greatly be reduced by the support you give. The money raised here will go directly to the many different needs and wants that Destiny has. PLEASE, if you are able, support this family by donating any amount towards the financial goal (the only burden we could hope to alleviate). 

Friends and family have put together  baskets to help raise funds for Destinys Fun (bucket) List Wishes. One huge wish is to go to a makeup show. Destiny has been invited to fo to IMATS 2015  and Destiny's family would appreciate your support to help Destiny get there. The  baskets are to raise funds for the hotel expense, gas and food. Anything extra received will go directly to Destiny to help fullfill other Fun List wishes she has. If you are not comfortable sending a donation through this site you can also mail a check or money order to Destiny Herrera at PO Box 303 Salida, Ca 95368. Destiny and her family truly appreciate your support. 

If you cannot support them financially, please support them with your thoughts/prayers. Destiny's family feels that prayers are the greatest gift that can be given to their brave sweet girl. 

May GOD bless you and your family.
