Gerald’s NASCAR Dream

NASCAR fan Gerald had the time of his life visiting the Bristol Motor Speedway during his dream trip to Tennessee! Gerald’s mom said, “We had a wonderful trip to Tennessee. Jerry had a blast, he even got to watch part of the truck race! Thank you, Sunshine Foundation, for making his dream come true!”

Gerald, 18, has schizencephaly, which is a rare congenital (present from birth) brain malformation characterized by abnormal slits, or clefts, in the cerebral hemispheres of the brain. Sunshine Foundation is thrilled to see the happy photos of their family vacation!
