"Everything about Eleri’s life is fragile and uncertain, and we are grateful for every day we have with her."-Pam Michaels, Eleri's Mother
SANTA FE- For Eleri-Clare who is only 3-years old mornings can be tough. She wakes up stiff and the only reprieve is warm water. When the volunteers from the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of New Mexico visited with Eleri-Clare and her family there were numerous discussions of what would be an appropriate wish, and a Therapy Tub from Marquis Spas was the answer.
Eleri-Clare is unable to communicate verbally for herself, but her loving family knew what would help improve her quality of life. Her medical condition prevents her from being able to speak or walk but she is able to express happiness and pain. Warm water takes away that pain; it is the only time where Eleri-Clare can hold her own weight, where she can actually hold herself up.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation® of New Mexico worked with Marquis Spas and Genesis Spas and Pool of Santa Fe to supply all that was needed for Eleri-Clare to have her own therapy tub in her backyard. In addition Eleri-Clare’s Wish was sponsored by Renegade, who has been a continuing supporter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of New Mexico by sponsoring a Wish annually.
