Gabriel, 17, was born with myopathy fiber-type disproportion, a rare genetic muscle disease that has resulted in a deficiency of muscle, lung, and heart strength. Motivated by a love for the arts, a personal hobby of creative writing, and an overactive imagination obtained from excessive reading, he teamed up with his best friend of two years, Danielle, to co-write their debut novel. When he learned a final diagnosis for his disability, he became eligible for Make-A-Wish and obtained a publishing deal through Rivershore Books. After three years, Gabriel has become a published author at just seventeen years old!
Help us celebrate Gabriel's success and pack the house at his very first book signing. Guests are encouraged to invite friends, and introduce them to the Make-A-Wish mission, meet this talented wish kid and share his love of books.
