February 5, 2016 – Smutty Shout-Outs
Olja! Happy 32nd Birthday from Knuckles, your #1 man, Eva, and Ana.
Eric Weidman is 13 years old. He enjoys listening to music and playing on his computer in his spare time. His favorite author is James Patterson and he tries to never miss an episode of The Big Bang Theory. Eric also loves swimming and tries to swim in as many competitions as possible. When asked about the future, Eric says he plans to be a business lawyer.
When he was 9, Eric was diagnosed with epilepsy due to a brain mass. Testing revealed that he was experiencing 15 to 20 seizures each day. Eric had surgery in July 2012 to remove the rare golf-ball sized tumor (dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumor with cortical dysplasia type 1A). He requires periodic re-assessments with MRI due to risk for re-growth and has some deficits from the epilepsy, tumor and surgery.
Eric will be receiving a wish from a team called The Medicine Crushers in a fundraising event called Exile Island. They are hoping to raise enough money so that Eric’s wish can be granted by Children’s Wish. Please click here for more information and if you are able to make a gift to help Eric get his wish.
