For several years, Creekside High School’s Dreams Come True Club has been raising money and waiting for COVID restrictions to lift so that they could grant a wish and celebrate a child battling a life-threatening illness.
Their dream finally came true when Ja’Mya and her family dropped in for a party, complete with yellow balloons and lemon cake (her favorite), games, and lots of goodies.
The 13-year-old, who has End Stage Renal Disease and is on the liver transplant list, received a magic wand to bring with her on an all-expenses paid 7-day trip to Give Kids the World, which includes Disney Parks, Universal Parks, and Sea World.
Additionally, she and her three sisters received gifts donated by students and teachers. “It was truly a team effort, and this group, led by Andrew Otwell, is amazingly dedicated,” said co-sponsor Heidy Weaver, who wanted to give special thanks to Leia Fixel’s theatre students and co-sponsor Tracey Pitts for helping make this a memorable event for Ja’Mya.
