The family and friends of Sarah Goodwin are uniting to raise money to fulfill Sarah's last wish. Please show your support!

Sarah is a 13 year old girl with Rett Syndrome. She is going through Autonomic Failure due to the Rett Syndrome. She is progressively losing the ability to control subconscious bodily functions (i.e. controlling digestion, heart rate, breathing, and many more). Her little sister (Danielle) suffered from the same problem and passed away Jan 29, 2008.

Sarah qualified to receive a wish from the Make-A-Wish foundation. But we were informed that they are currently experiencing a backlog of 6 to 12 months to begin the process. We do not know if she has that much time. From the time Sarah’s sister (Danielle) began having problems she only had 5 months.

The other problem is the wish Sarah wants cannot be fulfilled by Make-A-Wish. Make-A-Wish only allows siblings living in the home under 18 to be a part of a wish. Sarah has two older half-sisters one of which Sarah has not met (Michelle is 24, married and has a 4 year old son), the other she has only met once (Candice is 23); her wish is to spend the week of her birthday at Disney World with them and Michelle’s family and to have a chance to get to know them. They want to get to know her too before she is gone. Sarah’s half- sisters were never able to meet Danielle. They live in California and we live in Georgia.
