Sharon said her son Bryce is truly a miracle child. “He was in a coma for 30 days with no brain or heart activity when he was nine years old,” she said. Just as his parents had given up hope, Bryce came back to life. His precarious condition was caused by type I diabetes with cerebral edema complications.
“His brain swelled and he needed a shunt,” said Sharon.
Now 12, Bryce is completely insulin dependent, requiring an insulin pump, strict diet, and activity restrictions to prevent bruising to his brain.
“It’s amazing that Bryce is just so outgoing,” Sharon said despite all he’s gone through. “People gravitate to him and he has such a positive outlook.”
In an effort to do something positive for her son, Sharon searched the internet and discovered Kids Wish Network, an organization that grants wishes to children suffering with life-threatening illnesses. She submitted Bryce’s name along with his wish to meet ‘The Terminator’, Arnold Schwarzenegger. A Wish Coordinator soon contacted Bryce with the good news: he was going to meet his favorite movie idol.
