High School Trip

A boy was diagnosed with Gaucher’s Disease and Muscular Dystrophy at birth. During his teenage years, the diseases stripped him of his ability to walk. Every year, the l2th grade class at his school takes a 6week trip to Europe, which is the highlight of their high school experience. Although the teen was able to raise the money for his own trip, he could not afford to pay for the costs of a companion to provide him with the care he required during the trip. Small Angels’ Board unanimously approved a gift for the boy’s companion, which would allow him to take his senior trip with his classmates.
