About Airie:

On any given day, you can find Airie practicing cartwheels or handstands outside, or learning about science. Her favourite subjects right now are the solar system and creepy-crawly bugs, and she loves discovering more cool things at Science World. But when she’s doing the things she loves, she has to be careful because Airie lives with Long QT syndrome.

Long QT syndrome is a heart condition that can cause uncontrollable, dangerous arrhythmias which can result in palpitations or even sudden death. Airie was diagnosed at the age of three when she began passing out while exercising. She once passed out in a swimming pool where she almost drowned and was saved by CPR. On top of everything, she also suffered from myoclonic seizures.

When Airie’s parents learned she had Long QT, they went to get the rest of the family tested, since it is a hereditary disorder. They were shocked to find out her brother, father, grandmother, and aunt also have the disorder. Airie now takes daily medication and must adhere to this for the rest of her life without fail. For the seizures, the medication she took caused most of her hair to fall out, and it’s slowly growing back. For a little six-year-old girl, these side-effects are very tough. And for the rest of the family, the trauma of almost losing Airie - and the risk she will live with forever - is heartbreaking.

Airie’s one true wish is to go to Disney World, and she is constantly bugging her parents to go. She can hardly wait for her wish to come true, but her parents will wait a little longer until her younger brother is old enough to also enjoy the experience. In the meantime, she’ll keep discovering the world, one creepy-crawly bug at a time!

All proceeds will support Airie's Avengers, a TIMBER MART Heroes Challenge team made up of Children's Wish staff and volunteers, fundraising to grant Airie's wish.
