TMB has had the honor of participating in a number of important causes during its tenure that are very near and dear to us, read more below:
Make a Wish Foundation:
Deanna is a 3 year old transplant recipient who was born with Biliary Atresia, a condition of the liver and bile ducts. Her donor and hero was able to save her life when she was just 7 months old. She recently celebrated her 3-year transplant anniversary and her second chance at life. Make a Wish foundation granted her the wish of going to Disney in February 2016. Once I heard her story and where she was going, TMB just had to do something special to send her off to the happiest place on Earth! Her custom ears had Frozen, ballet, her picture, her transplant date, a thank you to Make a Wish, and a quote honoring her donor hero. Follow @deannasjourney on Instagram and Facebook to learn more about her story. I was so very honored to have been able to contribute to her Disney wish. Not only is Deanna outgoing and full of life but she's a constant reminder of the good outcome when one gives the gift of life. If you haven't already, register to be an organ donor. Be someone's miracle!
Deanna's Journey Foundation
Deanna's Journey Foundation (DJF) was founded by Heidi Anderson, recipient mom of little Deanna Anderson. Deanna's Journey Foundation is built on brining joy and awareness to children currently on the transplant list who are ill and awaiting an organ(s). Joey, is a 3-year old multi organ recipient who was just diagnosed with PTLD, a developed cancer post transplant. DJFs founder, Heidi, contacted TMB to put a little something together to brighten up his days, TMB created a Mickey care package to bring the magic of Disney to him while he's admitted and undergoes treatment at the hospital.
