“This is my friend, Mila.
She is terminally ill from heart failure and is not a candidate for transplant.
One of her bucket list items is to watch a Warriors game live and meet Steph Curry and the rest of the Dubs Team.”
Jo Anna Quan wrote this story about her friend Mila.
They met when they both worked in the Stanford Emergency Room.
Here's the rest of what Jo Anna wrote about her friend:
Despite her illness, you will always see Mila with a smile on her face.
She's a humble person of faith and thanks God for the extra time she has been given.
Mila was in a orphanage in Bulgaria till the age of 5 and has no family medical history.
(The 2nd picture was taken at the orphanage)
Mila is now terminally ill at the age of 30.
She is in a wheelchair because just getting out of her chair makes her short of breath.
Her six-month goal was to make it to her birthday, which she accomplished!
Mila worked as an ER technician for 10 years before she had to step down due to health issues.
She is the one who brought you a cozy warm blanket to wrap around your shoulders.
And assisted you to the bathroom when you couldn't get there on your own.
One of her bucket list items is to see the Warriors play.
She would give anything to meet Steph.
She also loves his daughter Riley’s spunk and seeing her makes her smile
We thought about trying to get wheelchair access seats at the stadium but neither of us have ever been to a game and I don’t have the strength to help her as I’m have mobility issues of my own.
Our lives mostly revolve around medical care and we would love an opportunity to do something "normal" despite our medical challenges before it's too late.
If you know someone who can help make an adult's wish come true she would be so grateful.
