Make A Wish Foundation of Southern Nevada and I

VinnieVinnie and His Sister.
I am truly excited to work with and be a part of Make-A-Wish Foundation! A huge part of my success in life is about what I can give back to my community in order to make a difference for the greater good, as well being able to touch peoples lives. I feel that its part of my mission, my lifes purpose. This for me is a way of life, for the rest of my life. I asked Make-A-Wish to partner up with me so I can help make a wish come true, but also be completely involved in making those wishes come true! Think Extreme Home Makeover where you see the entire process from beginning to end. You really feel the family and their pain and then their excitement at the end. That is what I want to do! I want to be able to see and feel what a positive impact just one person can truly have on changing someones life for the good. Vinnie's Wish is the first of many wishes that I get to work on. Along the process I will write updates with photos and keep everyone up to date. Being able to help a little child feel better both mentally and physically with the intention of making his life happier and healthier just feels really good for me! Can you imagine being a part of the reason a little, innocent child doubled their life expectancy rate? I'm super Grateful for the people that are a part of my life that help and want to be a part of these inspiring, life changing ways of making a difference for the greater good! I am thankful to be able to have a successful Real Estate Business and take that business and do good things with it for more then just myself! That would be a very non full-filling life! So Below is The Story of 8 year old Vinnie .... "Vinnie was born at 30 weeks weighing just about 3lbs. At 2 weeks old he had a stroke and a severe seizure at 3 years old. Vinnie has cerebral palsy, epilepsy, autism and ADHD. Vinnie is a happy boy, always smiling! Vinnie works extremely hard, going to school from 9am-3pm everyday and then having in home ABA Therapy 6 nights a week from 3:30-8:30pm. During Therapy, Vinnie gets breaks where he likes to go right out to is backyard. In fact, this is also the first place he goes when he gets home from school! Vinnie likes to roam, so the backyard gives him the space to do that and get out of the house. Since Vinnie is non-verbal, he has few social interactions and no friends, spending most of his free time alone. His backyard is his Sanctuary." Vinnies wish is to have a pool in his backyard because the pool is the one place where Vinnie feels like he has power over his life - a sense of clarity! His mom said, literally she has to drag him out! He never wants to get out and it makes him feel so good mentally and physically! Huge Release for him. To be able to have this pool could definitely impact Vinnies health in a very positive way! So that is what I have teamed up to do. Raise money and bring all the right people together to build an above ground pool in Vinnies backyard so that he can have his own sanctuary! The goal is to have this done by mid May, right in time for summer and Vinnies Birthday at the end of May! He truly deserves this pool, right?!
