Overwhelmed by sheer joy and amazement, Bernalise shook her head in disbelief. In her lap sat more than just a new Apple Macbook Pro – it was her wish come true!

“I have always wanted an Apple laptop to do my homework and to keep in touch via Skype with my family that is far away in the Dominican Republic!” exclaimed Bernalise.

Despite missing class time for eight surgeries, Bernalise continues to excel in school as an honors student through her hard work and dedication. She loves reading and history and now has a MacBook Pro to help her further her studies!

Bernalise and her family also have few opportunities to visit their long-distance relatives, especially with Bernalise’s time consuming medical procedures. She was ecstatic that her new gift would help her stay close with her family, whose support has helped her through so much.

“I have been through difficult times because of my hydrocephalus condition but thanks to God, my family, and my doctors, I’m doing much better,” Bernalise shared. “Thank you for helping me - and my family - by making my wish come true.”

There are no words for me to say how thankful I am for the support you gave my princess and what you did for my family. Bernalise is the happiest girl right now. ”

— Bernalise's mom, Olympia
