About Wish On A STAR
Grace named her non-profit company Wish on a STAR because she is the only US Citizen diagnosed with STAR Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder. There are only 5 people diagnosed with STAR Syndrome in the world. When Grace found her friend, Lena, in Germany (who also has STAR Syndrome) it helped her feel less “alone” in her battle.
Wish On A STAR operates solely through donations.
Grace wants others to have that same feeling of relief and connectedness. “Being connected to others who are going through what you are going through helps you cope.” Grace works hard to help one family at a time feel connected to their own community by wrapping all kinds of support around them. Everyone who meets Grace falls in love with her positive attitude and encouraging demeanor. At such a young age, Grace has developed a sense of empathy that goes far beyond what most adults experience in a lifetime.
Thanks for helping us make more wishes come true.
