Eden was diagnosed with Lissencephaly when she was only 6 months old.
Lissencephaly is a rare congenital condition that causes a developing brain to appear smooth instead of having normal bumps and folds.
It is a life limiting diagnosis that unfortunately comes with a very difficult to treat form of epilepsy.
Eden requires physical assistance with every aspect of her daily living and uses an eye gaze device to communicate with her family.
In 2020 and 2021, Eden sufferred a difficult time with her condition and spent much of her time in hospital and is now in palliative care.
The palliative care team contacted Make a Wish as Eden has always been desperate for her own dog. She actually specifically asked for a curly black boy, but when she went though the litters available she chose Maverick immediately.
Maverick is settling in well with his new family and is getting used to their busy routine.
We wish Eden and her family the very best and hope Maverick brings much love and companionship into their home.
