One year old Quinn Schiro was diagnosed with Pontocerebellar
Hypoplasia (PCH) at the age of 5 months old. PCH is a very rare brain
disease that affects the development of the brain. Unfortunately,
there is no cure for the disease and children with this disease do not
live past early childhood. Quinn's parents decided to put together a
bucket list for her, to not only raise awareness for PCH, but to
ensure everyday spent with Quinn will be filled with wonderful
experiences in her short life.
One item on Quinn's Bucket List was to become a Girl Scout. Daisy Troop 50106 from Land O Lakes community threw a "Welcome to the Daisy Flower Garden" party Saturday, May 24, for Quinn where they inducted her into their troop and made her an honorary Girl Scout.
The girls used some of their cookie proceeds to purchase gifts for
Quinn and decorations for the party. They handmade "flower
explosions" which are small balls filled with mulch and
wildflowers that are to be planted in Quinn's honor. They also
handmade the welcome sign and decorated all the flower pots that held
chips. The party was a huge success and the girls had a wonderful
time getting to know Quinn.
What a wonderful act of kindness shown by these Daisy Girl Scouts and their families. Check out the photos of the party below. To learn more about Quinn's story and to stay updated on all of her experiences, visit Quinn's Bucket List on Facebook.
