This weekend I was lucky enough to be a part of the amazing Wonderland of Wishes event. It was held at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, PA. Eli and Ella’s Prayer Warriors was started a few months ago when Eli (7) and Ella (4) were diagnosed with Metachromatic Leukodystrophy. I also met Dean and Teryn Suhr who started the MLD
foundation after two of their children were diagnosed with MLD. The foundation was started in early 2001. The Suhrs flew in from Oregon to attend the event and raise awareness. I will post more about this amazing couple and their foundation soon.
So back to Eli and Ella and the incredible event the community put on to support the Vivian Family. It is humbling to see the love of a community and to be surrounded by so much good. Here are a few pictures from Sunday. More to come I promise.

The Vivian kids meet Santa:
The best Santa (Guy McNair) I have ever met. He was so kind and fun. Just a happy jolly guy. Just like Santa should be. Check him out on Facebook.
There was even a cute little reindeer that came. Oh my check out that smile he gave his mama.
More to come soon.
