Teagan, an active eight-year-old is quite the adventurer. And, though she doesn’t travel far, has many imaginative adventures along with her brother Garrett. So when Teagan, started experiencing flu-like symptoms and muscle pain suddenly, her parents were suspicious there was something more serious going on. After several trips to the doctor, Teagan was diagnosed with Leukemia.
When Teagan was referred to Make-A-Wish she knew that the wish she had in mind would surpass any other desire or dream. Teagan wished for a tree house. A tree house that is big enough to share with her brother, a place where she can feel as free as she does on her many adventures, but more importantly, a place that she can call her own. This tree house will serve as a safe haven for Teagan as well as popular new hangout for her, her brother and friends. Like many other wish kids, this wish will become Teagan’s motivation and an escape toward normalcy
Teagan learned that her tree house wish was being granted, much to her surprise, on stage in front of a more than 300 attendees at Wake Up for Wishes on November 19 in Sacramento. Teagan and family were invited as guests to the Make-A-Wish breakfast event, and before the morning was over, Teagan’s wish was granted. Through the overwhelming support from the community and a little Make-A-Wish magic, many people had the privilege of witnessing the impact of a Teagan’s heartfelt wish.
Teagan’s wish was generously adopted by chapter founder Frank Ramos
