Our Beginning ... September of 1996, Lynn Robinette's two children were diagnosed
with Freidriech's Ataxia, a form of Muscular Dystrophy. Ms. Robinette is a single
mother. After several second opinions, she accepted the diagnosis but not the
treatment. All of the doctors that she spoke with in 1996 gave her no hope.
The only treatment was to sit back and watch.
She was told that the only thing that could be done was to watch the decline
of her children and when their health became severe enough, then certain
procedures could be performed to stabilize their condition. One procedure that
was repeatedly mentioned was the need of fusing rods to the children's spines
after the curvatures in the spine became more severe. The doctors predicted
the need of the surgery within two years. She knew that she had to research
After many hours of research, Ms. Robinette found other methods to help her
children. As of today, ten years later, doctors have ruled out the need of
rods being fused to the spine of Ms. Robinette's children. God is so faithful.
During the first six years of our journey, many discoveries were made. Many
needs were identified, and visions noted, thus the beginning of the Wishes
4 Me Foundation.
