Alissa McDonald is not only a lifetime WG resident but a huge fan of WG Charm. She We out last week that our 3 week old baby girl was diagnosed with Severe Combined Immunodeficiency more commonly known as "the bubble boy disease". Her little body is without an immune system, she has been admitted to UCSF Childrens hospital where she will remain until she can receive a bone marrow transplant. They also have a 3 year old at home and so needless to say splitting the time between the hospital and home has already proved to be a challenge and it is only the beginning of the this very long journey. They are asking for all the positive thoughts, prayers and support they can get. You can sign their guest book with positive words below.
