I wish to have gymnastics equipment

Victoria is a 5-year-old girl who suffers from an immune deficiency. This condition means she must receive immunoglobulins transfusions every three weeks for 11 hours. On top of being a patient and a smiling little girl, she is full of energy! She is also quite the gymnast at four years old and has classes every Sunday! 

During her first meeting, Victoria expressed that gymnastics was so important to her that her greatest wish was to have her own gymnastics equipment in her basement. This way, she could practice every day! 

Surrounded by her family and her wish granters, she was speechless on her wish day! What a surprise it was! It only took Victoria a couple of minutes to start using her new uneven bars, her balance beam and her backflip cushion! Her new gym was painted in her favorite color (purple) with drawings of gymnasts to inspire her. 

That Sunday, Victoria didn’t go to her gymnastics class. Her mother explained “She won’t be able to concentrate! She will just want to stay here and benefit from this!” 

A special thank you to Dulux paints that helped us personalize Victoria’s new gymnastics gym!
