Make a Wish Foundation builds garden for eight year old boyIvriniel8/21/14 10:41amFiled to: Antonio Lagunamake a wish foundationgarden413EditPromoteShare to KinjaGo to permalinkEight year old Antonio Laguna has an extremely rare condition known as ROHHAD (Rapid-onset Obesity with Hypothalamic dysfunction, Hypoventilation and Autonomic Dysregulation). This condition, of which there are less than 100 known cases world-wide, causes the patient to stop breathing unexpectedly. It also interferes with a patient's ability to feel full and as such often leads to childhood obesity.AdvertisementAntonio's condition led him to take up gardening, as a way to produce healthy food for himself. The Make a Wish Foundation has helped him with this by building a greenhouse, and planting an orchard. What makes this story extra sweet is that Antonio wants to share the produce of his garden with hungry people. He wants it to be a community garden where anyone who wants can come and pick food.ShareTweet Kinja is in read-only mode. We are working to restore service.
