The East Polk County Association of Realtors played a pivotal role in turning this dream into reality, sponsoring the entire experience. Their generosity not only made Brittney’s day, but left a lasting impact on her and her family.

Family Thank You

Lisa, Brittney’s mom, expressed her gratitude, stating, “Thank you so much for granting Brittney’s wish! She had a blast shopping until she dropped! She loved being able to go to her favorite store, Simply Southern, and shopping until she couldn’t anymore!!! Many thanks again for the opportunity!”

Brittney’s Diagnosis

Brittney is diagnosed with spina bifida. The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke defines spina bifida as a birth disorder where the neural tube doesn’t close completely and some of the bones of the spine do not close in the back. This may cause an opening anywhere on the back that may cause damage to the spinal cord and nerves. People born with spina bifida may have nerve damage below the affected area. Some children with spina bifida may also have learning or intellectual disabilities.


This heartening story highlights the power of community and compassion. The East Polk County Association of Realtors not only excels in the real estate realm but also stands out as a pillar of support for dreams and aspirations within the community.

In a world where challenges like spina bifida can be daunting, gestures like these bring rays of sunshine. It’s a reminder that simple acts of kindness and generosity can make a significant impact on someone’s life.

Brittney’s shopping spree serves as a touching reminder that dreams can indeed come true, especially when backed by a supportive community and compassionate sponsors. Kudos to the East Polk County Assoc of Realtors for being the driving force behind this heartwarming experience. May their example inspire others to spread joy and make a difference in the lives of those facing challenges.
