This is Gracie's Princess fund. All funds will be used to send Gracie to Disney World so she can fulfill her dream of being a Princess.

Gracie received a small intestinal transplant in November of 2011 which her body rejected and it was removed a little over a month later. She was then re-listed to receive not only a new intestines but also a new stomach, liver, and pancreas. However, because of other medical issues, including problems with her heart and lungs, I have decided that a second transplant will only cause Gracie more pain and hardship then it would help her. The pulmonologist and transplant surgeons support this decision as well. Because of this Gracie has been removed from the transplant list and we are now focusing on giving her the best quality life possible.
Those who know Gracie know that she has a HUGE love for everything Princess's. Being in Disney World 6 months ago was the happiest I had ever seen her, she always had a smile on her face. Gracie also has three other siblings and has to share Mommy's attention throughout the day, even though Gracie loves her brothers and sister dearly- she is a complete Mommy's girl and likes to have Mommy to herself whenever possible.
I have decided that with everything Gracie has been through in the past and while she is to a point where she is able to, she is going to get one more trip to Disney World. This time it will be just Gracie and Mommy and it will be the ultimate Princess trip. My goal is to give Gracie an entire week where the only focus is on her and her happiness. She will have special Princess surprises throughout the trip, including a Princess make over, a Princess Tea Party, and a lots of new Princess dresses, among many other special things.
Disney World is obviously expensive, just the hotel and tickets is an enormous amount but when you add in all of the other expenses for all her special activities it is even more outrageous. I wasn't going to set up a fundraising page but had many people asking how they could help us make this trip possible. So, we thank you for helping make Gracie's dream to be a Princess come true. Whether it is by money, by prayer, or by support- we thank you, we appreciate you, and we will be praying for you.

God Bless,
