Warrior’s Christmas is for our medically needy gastroschisis survivors ages 2 to 18 years old.
Avery’s Angels Gastroschisis Foundation helps bring some very special Christmas joy to children who have been confronting serious medical interventions over their life time. Most of the children nominated spend 70% of their time in a hospital or receiving active long term medical care arising from their original gastroschisis diagnosis. The Warrior’s Christmas is an annual event to support our long term patients ages 2 to 18 years old who are enduring long term effects of gastroschisis from STEP, Omegaven, transplant, short gut and other complicating issues. The nominees have endured hospitalizations over the past year and continue to fight the effects of gastroschisis. This year we are teaming up with Healing Helpers to gift 15 long term patients with a special Helper of their own!
Our 2014 Warrior’s Christmas was funded by the Douglas family.
The 2014/2015 Warrior’s include Markofe, Alexis, Emmett, Tommy, Taylor, Aiden, Sydney, Genevieve, Tyler, and Navaiah.
