Wishing Well Texoma grants Durant family trip to Hawaii

DURANT, Okla. (KXII) - A Durant family got to go on a trip to Hawaii through Wishing Well Texoma as a gift for their daughter who suffers with several health issues.

Blair Sullivan is just like any other 4-year-old.

She loves to tap dance and play in the water.

She was also born with a heart defect called hypo-plastic left heart syndrome.

"We were told at eight days old that she would need a heart transplant," Blair's mom, Angie Sullivan said.

Blair's been through a lot in her four years of life including multiple heart surgeries, two strokes at the hospital, and a heart transplant in 2016.

Plus, she eats 95 percent of her food through a feeding tube.

But she hasn't let any of that stop her.

"She's actually learned quite a bit of sign language because she also had two strokes during her time in the hospital so they think that's affected her eating and her speech," Angie said.

That's why it meant so much when Wishing Well Texoma gave Blair and her family a trip to a Disney resort in Hawaii in July.

Wishing Well Texoma is a non-profit that grants wishes to children ages 3 to 18 with life-threatening illnesses.

"We went to the Aulani resort in Hawaii, which is a Disney resort and they have basically a water park there, and Blair loves the water so she spent a lot of time in the pool," Angie said.

Blair's mom said it was a trip that their family will never forget.

Her family has a Facebook page called "Beats for Baby Blair" with almost 13,000 followers to keep people updated on her progress.

"We really started it for prayer we knew that Blair would really need it for prayers," Angie said.

Her family said Blair has come a long way, but she still struggles with eating and speech, so she does multiple therapies weekly.

But her dad, Jordan, says the family hasn't gone to the hospital in more than 2 years, and says she makes progress every day.
